Network map issues
I have a vista computer and laptop and 360 in a network, the problem im
having is that the laptop is working fine when it connects to the wireless
router all my computers access, its network map shows itself going through
the router; however my vista desktop while seeing the laptop in the network
places, does not see itself as going through a network and sees itself as
soley going through its own network and connected to the internet in the
network map. The desktop does not recognize my router as a network like my
laptop.

Re: Network map issues
what brand and model and hardware version router?
can you post a screenshot picture someplace (not here) and provide a
link?

sometimes wireless routers show as two devices on the network map if
they have an embedded wireless access point.

also, is the desktop in the same workgroup as the laptops?

Network map issues
the router is a netgear wgt624 v2 wireless router. It shows up as only a
residential gateway. The laptop does work on the same workgroup.
