We have a small workgroup at my work. Most are wired XP pcs which use a shared ADSL modem and shared printers
3 pcs are wireless notebooks. 2 can see all the other PCs in Network Places, but the third cannot.
The offending machine is running AVG antivirus and firewall, but SMB file and print sharing is allowed. Turning off the firewall does not fix the problem.
It can ping everyone on the network, and can see the gateway and use the internet. It can print to the shared printer too!
It must be a windows setting i guess. The error is 'mshome is not accessible.... etc', and yes, we are on the workgroup MSHOME.
---- I've noticed that I can ping by IP address but not by name, is that significant?
Can anyone advise?
