I'm a sad ole git and have a LAN network in my home - about 6 PCs in all, all on the same workgroup and each PC runnimg XP Pro.
Enter my new laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium.
I've set the workgroup and re-bboted etc. I go to 'Network' window and sometimes ALL the LAN connected PCs show up, sometimes none and sometimes maybe just 1 or 2! I refresh the view and wait, still no joy then maybe 20 minutes later, all the PCs are there once more!
If I go to anyone of the XP PCs, all PCs in the workgroup are always there and always accessible.
What the heck is going on?
