computer not in network neighborhood
What would prevent a computer from showing up in the network neighborhood on the same computer.
When i do a find,it shows loc in the workgroup,but not in the neighborhood so the other pcs on the net don't see it.
Typically, when a computer does not show up, it means it's sharing nothing. If you already have file and print sharing enabled in your network properties, then we need to take a different route. If it is not enabled, add it and it should show up.
I finally got it working!! This network stuff can be a pain in the you know what.
I had everything setup properly, but pcA and pcB could see each other but couldn't see pcC.
pcC could see A and B but not itself in the network neighborhood.
I finally went into advance property for the Netgear card on C and changed the driver from 32 to 16 bit. It's been working perfectly ever since. The other two pcs were using Soho cards.
Next i couldn't get the shared printer to work properly. I downloaded the latest drivers for it and now everything works.
Lesson#1 Stick to the same brand of Nic cards.
Lesson#2 Make sure you are using the latest drivers.
