Default Resetting Win7 to XP folder sharing settings?

Scratching my head over this one... I'm sharing FAH folders on both a Win7 64bit and an XP Home(sp3) machine with another XP Home(sp3) rig in order to have all of my clients available for a single instance of HFM.

Here's the kicker... everything was working fine, but for some reason the windows 7 machine stopped sharing one of two folders (one's the GPU client, the other's the SMP2 client). It shows up under workgroup, but whenever I try to access it, it won't allow me in (error about not having access, contact your administrator). It had been initially working, and then just stopped (this is the SMP client files under programs X86). The gpu client folder on the other hand is working fine.

I've tried rebooting both PCs, tried turning file sharing off and then back on for the Win7 machine (used to work for XP folders which had lost connection) and all file sharing properties are the same between the two folders.

Any ideas?

edit: Maybe it's time to start setting up static ips in the router? Would that make my connections more stable and less likely to drop off? (Used to happen fairly often with XP networked machines....).
