Windows 7: Network page does not show all networked pc/nas etc; however manual ok

Network page does not show all networked pc/nas etc; however manual ok

When i look at my network page i can see 1 or two other networked computers in the same "WORKGROUP" but for others they do not show up such as another Windows 7 pc and a NAS. All devices are in the same workgroup and all fall under the 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 Network. One PC in question had all details on auto and the other is a static IP NAS. Also all end devices that are windows 7 have their network as part of a home network. This problem only became aparent

I can manually type in their IP or name and then gain access to it and even ping it.

The network has all end devices converge to a single 24 port switch which then leads to the modem router (which is also the DHCP).

How do i rectify and have the end device show up in "Network" page.

I have tried:
Disabling and enabling:local area connection and all within it
toggle: home network settings e.g. Network discovery etc LLTD
power cycling all switches and end devices
did an sfc /scannow


Any help and guidance with this matter is greatly appreciated.

renren,

I don't have a solution for you, but I do have a recommendation. Your description, "my network page," is a little obscure. Do you mean the window which renders by Start>Network or Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network Map? Giving the path to your, "my network page," may help you receive a reply.

respectfully,
drpepper
