Weird network issue

Hi. I have a strange issue (at least to me) trying to set up my home
network. I've read alot of the other posts and my issue seems a bit
different (well, the symptoms are). I'd be grateful for any
suggestions!

Here's my setup / problem:

1. Home PC (Vista) and a Tablet (Vista).
2. Tablet PC is connected to the Internet gateway via Wifi router.
Home PC is wired. Both connect to the internet OK
3. Network sharing (etc) is all enabled on both computers and both have
link layer display enabled.
4. Neither computer has 3rd party firewalls (only Windows FW). Turning
Windows FW off makes no difference.
5. Home PC sees Tablet, can access files on Tablet etc.
6. TabletPC does not list the HomePC as a Network computer (eg in
Explorer)
7. Tablet PC does in fact show HomePC on the Network Map. This is the
weird bit.
8. Each computer can ping the other

The trouble for me is that obviously I want to use the Tablet to access
the HomePC not the other way around!!

If I set up a wired connection for the Tablet instead then the same
problem exists. My theory is that the Home PC is blocking the Tablet
exactly as if a Firewall was doing it, but I cannot work out why.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Re: Weird network issue

Follow up ---> I removed NetBIOS over TC/IP on both Network Adaptors
(Home & Tablet) and also made sure the Home PC's Network Adaptor had
automatic IP and DNS addressing.

This seems to have allowed the Tablet to find the HomePC on the Network
and now both PCs are accessible from each other....*
HOOOOORRRRRAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY !!!*
