Default offie connection

I am currently working in a small office. There are four pcs running windows xp
when pc 1 is turned off databases and internet cannot be accessed by the other 3. there is no router in the office all pcs are on a lan would firewalls being turned on be causing this. I have noticed before firewalls can prevent 1 pc seeing another in small networks. Any ideas

Yes firewalls will prevent access from outside computers (point of the firewall :P). Either the computers that can access have their firewall off OR they are configured to accept requests from particular IPs or an IP range.

Your office may not have a router, but it HAS to have some type of hub or switch that is allowing all of your computers to communicate.
