I've got 5 PC's connected as a workgroup via a Netgear 8 port switch which is connected to the Internet via a BT Versatility Hub/Router.
All machines are running static IP's which makes it easier to setup firewall.
All the computers can access the Internet.
4 of the machines appear in the 'view workgroup computers' - the 5th one is not there. However, I can access the 5th machine from any of the others by typing the path \\machinename and can then view all the shared files and folders. I can also access the '4' from the'5th' by using the same '\\computername' method.
I would like to be able to see the 5th machine in the 'workgroup computers'.
Anyone got any ideas as to why it will not appear?
