Windows 7 Networking
Hello,

I am having trouble with my network in Windows 7.
My firewall recognizes my network on all three computers and they are
all correctly named. Ethernet, but wireless gives no luck either. It's
set to home network, with network drives mapped on all computers. Vista
worked well this way but on 7 the network in Windows Explorer only
recognizes the computer it's opened on.

Any help appreciated.

Hi
First read this,
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...ing-essentials and
look at this
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...with-homegroup
Then click on Change Advances sharing settings (upper left in the Network
and Sharing Center) Pull down the Home and Work Menu and check the correct
entries.
As for the rest of the system.
Make sure that the Software Firewall on each computer allows free local
traffic. If you use 3rd party Firewall On, Vista/XP Native Firewall should
be Off, and the active Firewall has to adjusted to your Network IP numbers
on what is some time called the Trusted Zone (consult your 3rd Party
Firewall instructions.

Re: Windows 7 Networking

I would disable the firewall for now for testing purposes to see whether
or not that is causing it. If not, please post an ipconfig log of the
machine that won't connect.
