Windows 7: Devices not showing up on network

09 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 x64 Home Premium
Devices not showing up on network

So this is the second Windows 7 device i've had this happen to... and i never figured it out with the first computer it happened to.

Now it's happened to my desktop which i use all the time so i need to try to find a solution for it.

Basically, When i go to explorer i used to be able to see all the other devices which were on the network. So i would see my NAS, my Android Phone, and the other PCs. Well strangely yesterday all the devices disappeared under "network" and all I have left there is "DESKTOP-PC".

However, i can still access my NAS by typing \\NAS-001 in the address bar. Once i do this from explorer, then it will show up under the "Networks" drop down on the left.

I havent changed anything since it happened... so not sure whats going on. Any ideas here?
