Can no longer see workgroup computers

Discussion in 'Windows Media Center' started by Scott M Smith, Sep 30, 2007.

  1. Recently (withing the past 2 weeks) I've lost my ability to see my workgroup
    computers on 3 out of 4 computers on my home network. One computer can see
    everything, but if I go to "My Network Places" on the other 3 computers, I
    can't even see the workgroup "home". What makes this even more strange is
    that if I manually type the name of my print server computer into the "add
    printers" wizard, it finds it and adds the printer. So, all my computers can
    print via my print server computer ------- it's just that "My Network Places"
    seems to have stopped working on 3 of my 4 computers. On the computer that
    it still works on, I can see all the other computers and access shared files.
    I've checked that the Computer Browser, Server, and Workstation processes
    are running on all 4 computers. Again, this hapened only over the last
    couple of weeks. I know that there was a windows upgrade that was installed,
    could this have caused the problem? ------ thanks in advance for your help.

  2. Never mind ---- It turns out it was my Linksys Router that was
    messing everything up. It's been acting flaky lately, and this is just the
    latest instance of a problem. Once I turned it off and turned it on again,
    everything worked normally. I think I need a new wireless router :)
