Windows 7: networking with 64 bit win 7 and 32 bit win 7 problems

networking with 64 bit win 7 and 32 bit win 7 problems

I have a desktop running windows 7 64 bit with a printer attached (HP PSC 750) another desktop running XP 32 bit, and an Acer Aspire One netbook running Win 7 32 bit. All networked through a belkin 54G wireless router.
The Win 7 64 bit desktop and the XP communicate flawlessly, sharing files and the printer. The netbook on the other hand can't do anything. All PCs show up on the network map correctly. From the 64 bit and the XP machines I can access the netbooks public folders. When on the netbook I cannot access any of the PCs on the network and cannot find the printer. When I open the network page with the three icons for each pc and click on any one of them, I get an access denied message. Including the netbook's own icon.???
And I thought the XP machine was going to give me headaches. So is it my router, the netbook, am I missing something in the network settings? Perhaps there are known issues networking a 32 and 64 bit machine, I don't know. please help before I pull out all of my remaining hair.
SOLVED! READ LAST POST!

Is the netbook on the same workgroup and/or same homegroup as the other computers? Have you installed any third party firewall/security applications on the netbook? Do you have the netbook in a home, work, or public network?

All pcs are in the same workgroup, there are no third party firewalls, and all are set as home networks.

Did you name the netbook's computer name the same thing as one of the desktops? If so, change one of the names.

Go on netbook, open command prompt and type

net view then hit enter.

Post a screenshot. You can do the same from a desktop too if you would like.
