??? Can you make a kind-of diagram of that? Something doesn't sound right...

Following the procedure in MS Help, it should all work fine (all PC's access Internet) and "talk" to each other (all on same Workgroup) provided the User-ID's are present for the corrrect accesses between those that you allow (also depends on File/Folder security in Shares). Remember, there are two parts for "cross-connection access" (loosely termed) - the network setup and the user accesses. User accesses are irrelevant for the purpose of internet access; they only apply to Local, not Internet, but do apply if one needs to access the other... (slightly garbled explanation)
