Windows 7: Cannot view pcs or devices on network

Cannot view pcs or devices on network

Good afternoon everyone!

I am having another problem with viewing devices on my network. Everyone is in a workgroup, I am able to ping the devices, but I cannot see them in my network. The network discovery is turned on, the password protected sharing is turned off.

I am running windows 7 HP. The pc is connected through an ethernet cable to a switch as the others are. I have NO antivirus program on this machine(will get that later).

Any other information, just ask!

Thanks,
Sarah

Where fo the machines get dns? how is the switch configured? Since you can ping its not connectivity. no firewall on the win 7 machine as well

I know I know. Today has been a day. But I appreciate all the help. I figured it was something small.

Thanks Wally (*tear*)
