I have a network of about 90 computers connected together and i am currently running server 2003. Now when i go to network place on my xp machine, i am able to see all of my computers that are connected together. But when i go to network place on my window 7 machine, i am only seeing some of my window 7 computers and not the xp computers. The network discovery is turned on, on all of my window 7 and still nothing.. can anyone advise......

"Before a computer running Windows XP can be detected and appear on the network map, you need to install the LLTD protocol on that computer." Read more here -> Network Map in Windows Vista does not display computers that are running Windows XP - microsoft

The above information is from this article, Troubleshoot problems with computers not appearing on the network map -microsoft support listing multiple causes and solutions. Hope this helps!
