    I think the same thing happened to me. I have a linksys wireless G router. A laptop and a desktop is connect wirelessly to it and my desktop is connectly directly to it. I think you should first make sure that all of the computers are in the same workgroup. In 98 thats somewhere in the control panel under networking and in one of the tabs. (its been a while so I am not to sure about this) In win XP home open windows explorer and right click on My Computer then properties. Go to the computer name tab. I think this is the same as XP pro.

    Im not sure how I fixed the problem or how the workgroup changed in the first place. I think I just left it alone for a while and afterwards I could share files again. lolz
