I have been working with PC's since 1981 and networks since about 87 and I
have never had to wait 15-20 minutes for a PC to show up in a simple
Peer-to-Peer network in my life. What would be a possible reason for this?
By the way, scratch my solution (I think). Got up this morning and back to
square one again and unable to get PC's to see each other again no matter
what I have tried so far. Or do I need to wait 3-5 days for Vista to
propagate on this great big two system network.
