Thanks in advance for the help. I am having trouble accessing another computer on my network. Here is the layout.

Computer 1 is my desktop running on Windows 7 Ultimate (LAN connection)
Computer 2 is my laptop running on Windows 7 Ultimate (Wireless connection)
Computer 3 is my brothers laptop running on Windows XP (LAN connection)

Computer 1 detects only Computer 2 on the network
Computer 2 detects Computer 1 and Computer 3 on the network
Computer 3 detects only Computer 2 on the network

All three are in the same workgroup. How do I get Computer 3 to detect Computer 1 so that I can share files between the two (and vice versa)?

You have sharing enabled and folders shared on all computers?
Can the computers ping each other?
Have you checked firewalls?
