NetBEUI should not be necessary to share resources. I used to have NetBEUI
on my home network for gaming, but I removed it. I don't allow NetBEUI on
my work network at all because of the security risks it allows. TCP/IP
should be all that you need, so while you may have solved the immediate
problem, I would suggest that the real problem is somewhere in your TCP/IP
PS - NETBEUI is not being supported anywhere anymore, even by MS and will
probably disappear from future Win releases so you might's well find the
real problem now.
