Why I can't I see the Drives/Folders I've shared on the network?

I have two computers on a home network. They are networked through a D-Link router. One pc runs Windows XP Media Center Edition and the other runs Windows XP Home.

I have run the Network Setup Wizard on both computers, and I have shared the C: drive on both computers.

When I go to My Network Places on either computer, I don't see the shared drive from the other computer.

What am I doing wrong?

Check the workgroup. They must be the same.

The workgroups are the same. I tried pinging each computer from the other, both by name and ip.

The results I get both times:

4 packets sent, 4 packets lost.
Request timed out.

But in My Network Places, when I click "View workgroup computers," I get the message, "Mshome is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. The network path was not found."
