Hi,

I have three Laptops/PC in my home network. They all are on wired Network.

They all are running window 7/64

They are all on Home network.

They all have Network discovery turned on

But two of the PC's see everything on the local network including Network printer

But one PC can not see anything.

 

Do you know what could be wrong.

I would crosscheck the settings used on the two "good" systems...against those used on the non-player.

Just to try something basic, Windows Key + R > CMD > Ping <IP> and ping the IP of the computer that you can't see on the network. If you can ping it, it is probably a service or software issue on the problem computer. If you can't it may be a networking issue.

Security and monitoring software settings on this problematic laptop the same as the settings on the other two laptops?  How about  the wireless part?  Can all three see each other on the wireless?

I would double-check the workgroup setting.

 

I don't use the password-protected home network.  I keep mine simple (workgroup1, workgroup2)...but sometimes I forget and use workgroup 1, workgroup 2, creating a disconnect.

 

 Are you using the secure-password method for your home network?  If so, try the unsecured method.

Try it.  Remember that any change must be made on all 3 systems.
