I've spent 2-3 days now trying to solve the networking mysteries of Win 7.
In a nutshell. This computer (Windows 7-64) cannot see the other computers and shares on our small studio network except for the windows 7 machines (also Windows 7-64). (the other computers/shares are all XP)
We have 2 identical machines side by side, one can see all the computers, this one cannot. Both are fresh installs.
There are approx 8 other machines/shares on the network.
Both computers have vista installed on a seperate drive that see the network fine if booted into.
Both have homegroup turned off, and have workgroup enabled with the same workgroup name "WORKGROUP". Both have discovery and file sharing enabled. Both use the same network controller, and have the same updated Windows 7 driver.
-I have tried turning on/off iv6 (which I see some people think/don't think is an issue).
-I have disabled FIREWALL
-I have disabled anti-virus
-I have rebooted after each change
-I have tried different locations/cables on the hub
-I have tried the cable/hub location on the Windows 7 computer that is seeing the network computers.
ps. I forgot to mention that if I type in the IP address in addres bar I can access one of the other machines, but it will not show up in the network window.
I am really at a loss, and have read about every post I can find, and tried every suggestion.
Any further assistance would be much appreciated.
