I have Belkin N1 vision and connected to it by ethernet a Windows 7 (64bit) PC, and also connected by ethernet an XP (SP3) machine. I also have wireless connections for a Windows 7 (64bit) laptop and an XP (SP3) laptop.
Problem has been from day 1:
Windows 7 desktop (ethernet) only sees all other devices on network as media devices.
I have ensured the following:
All machines belong to same named workgroup.
Windows 7 machine is set to work network (as opposed to homegroup)
File sharing is enabled on all machines.
No firewall software running on any of the machines.
Have tried disabling AV software - no help.
The Windows 7 desktop is not visible at all on the network to any other machines. However, all 3 other machines DO see each other.
What is strange is that if I reboot the router then everything is fine - the Windows 7 desktop sees the other devices as computers. However, when the Windows 7 desktop has rebooted - back to square one, and it only sees media devices. Pinging works fine - machines see each other ok.
I'm now officially stumped. Anyone else had this?
