Home Network Setup

I’m having problems setting up my home network. It was working fine until I
replaced one computer (named Grumpy) that was running on Windows Me with a
new computer using Windows XP Home 2nd edition, and replaced Windows Me on
another computer (named Dopey) with Windows XP Professional Version 2002
Service Pack 1. The third computer (named Sneezy) is still running on
Windows Me. All the computers have Ethernet cards and are connected to
separate ports on a Linksys Model BEFSR41 Cable/DSL router which is connected
to a D-LINK DSL300G ADSL Router and then to my ISP via phone line. All three
computer’s Internet assesses works good. I used the Network Set Up wizard on
all three computers with a workgroup name of MSHOME to set my home network.

My problem is when I’m using Windows Explorer to view my network places I
get the following results:
Grumpy shows only the shared folders for Grumpy and Sneezy.
Sneezy shows only the shared folders for Sneezy.
Dopey shows only the shared folders for Dopey and Sneezy.
I tried setting up the network numerous times with rebooting each computer
time but still the same results.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
