Something not mentioned so far is if you have a share set up on either one or both of the machines. If you don't have a share setup, you won't be able to see the other machine on the network.

Another thing to check is any firewall software. I've gone through all the steps listed above, scratching my head, until I remembered that I had software running on both machines and security set to high, making both machines effectively invisible,even though all other settings were fine.
