1- Windows 7 Pro 32 bit SP 1 connected to the office network.
1- Windows 7 Pro 64 bit SP 1 connected to the office network
the issue on these two computers are:
Right now, they only see the 2 Windows 7 computers and 2 printers when browsing the Network.
we have about 25 windows XP machines and 7 servers along with a couple of other printers. there are no other Windows 7 computers here.
all the XP machines and servers can see all of the network objects including the 2 Win 7 computers.
We have a Sonicwall TZ100 router that has DHCP configured on it.
We did not have the password to get into it so we had an consultant come in reset the Sonicwall and configure it so that we can get into the router, neither myself or my co-worker has experience with Sonicwall and we do not have support from (Dell) Sonicwall. The company that set up the Sonicwall would not give us the password that is why we had to reset it.
Before the Sonicwall was reset to factory default the Win 7 computers were able to see all of the network objects.
after the reset it has been hit or miss on seeing all network objects.
right now 1 win 7 computer is set to Static IP and DNS and it can not see network objects.
the other one is set to DHCP and it cannot see network objects.
I have tried setting it to a Static IP address in the static IP range (static range is xx.xx.xx.1- xx.xx.xx.100 and xx.xx.xx.201-xx.xx.xx.254) and to a DHCP ip address range (DHCP range xx.xx.xx.101 - xx.xx.xx.200). sometimes I can see the network objects and sometimes I can't there is no set pattern. it is very frustrating.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
