Windows 7 Network

Hello All,
I have 4 computers, 2 run XP, 1 runs Vista and the newest runs 7. The 2 XP's and the Vista can all see each other in the network (including the Windows 7 machine), however the Windows 7 machine can only see the Vista machine. I've tried all configurations, security levels and views but I can't get the 7 machine to see the XP machines. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Can we get a screen shot of how you hae your Advance Network Settings Configured.

Also... do you have your computers on a dynamic or static network.

Being so.. I would just disable IPv6 all together.. leave IPv4 just for right now until we can get this network up and running.

Thanks Acurasd, I just downloaded the Link Layer Network Discovery tool for XP from Microsoft and it seems that's made the 7 machine recognize the XP machines. Appreciate your help though.
Thanks
