Windows 7: ASUS 1005PR Win 7 can't see all PCs in network

ASUS 1005PR Win 7 can't see all PCs in network

I have an ASUS 1005PR running Windows 7 Starter Edition. I also have a Dell Mini 12 running XP Home, a Dell Inspiron 700m running XP Home, and an ASUS TS-Mini running Windows Home Server. The 1005PR and the Dell Mini 12 connect wirelessly. The other two are cabled to the wireless router. They are all part of the same workgroup. My 1005PR only sees the Inspiron 700m, so I can't browse shared folders on the WHS machine. I am still able to access files that are on the WHS machine via the recent docs list for Excel, for example. I am also still able to print to a printer that is hosted on the WHS machine. I can still bring up the WHS Console on the 1005PR and can still establish a Remote Desktop Connection. All the other computers see the entire network.

This happened before and I found a setting for the 1005PR that I changed and it resolved the problem. I can't recall what that setting was, but I believe it had to do with network discovery. I have no idea what I changed that caused half of the network to disappear again.

Any help would be appreciated.

Problem solved

I went to Advanced Sharing Settings and found that HomeGroup Connections was set to Allow Windows to manage, etc. I changed it to Use user account and passwords, etc. and can now see all computers in the network and can browse WHS shares.
