Just by chance, if the other two computers are running Windows XP, try this:
Check the network properties list in the WinXP systems for a component called
Link-Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) Responder. If the LLTD Responder component
is not installed on the Windows XP-based computers they most likely won't be

Here's a link to an MS fix for the WinXP systems. Note, if they're up to SP3,
readily downloadable version (fix v5) probably won't to anything but say that
it's not needed, so then simply request the hotfix patch (fix v6) and apply it
You must request the hotfix from MS. The how-to information is contained within

After you extract the hotfix patch, simply run it in place on each Win XP
