Have 3 XP PCs. A & C can 'see' each other neither can see B. All can ping another all can browse through the gateway. If IPX is enabled B becomes accessible. Guest a/c is enabled. Local sec policy is identical. Registry hacked so only A is master browser. All belong to same workgroup. On B makes no diff if using Ethernet or WiFi adaptor.
If booting B to Win2K all is OK.
Any further ideas?

I assume that when you state that the 'PC A' & 'PC C' can not see 'PC B', you are refering to accessing the via UNC reference. I had a similar situation last month at a friends house. After going through and verifying seveal different settings and validating the IP Addressing, I noticed that he had turned off NetBIOS over TCP/IP. I re-enabled it and the computers could be reached via UNC references. You may also want to do a quick check on the LMHOSTS file, but I do not think that is causing the issue.I assume that when you state that the 'PC A' & 'PC C' can not see 'PC B', you are referring to accessing the via UNC reference.
