changing network name
I have 2 copies of Win 7 installed, one on my lappy, the other on my main pc.
My lappy can see all my files on the main pc and share the printer no probs.
However my main pc cannot influence my lappy, although it sees it on the network.
The only difference I can see in the settings is that my laapy network is named 'home' on the work network, and my main pc is part of a network called 'network' on work network.
I guess I need to change the name of the network to 'home' on the main pc but can't find the route to do it. Funny the lappy can see the main pc but not vice versa.
Any ideas folks?
