Windows 7: Small Prob

16 Nov 2010   #1

win 7 X64 Ultimate SP1
Small Prob

Network operates fine. I can communicate in either direction. Both rigs have web access. But something has me stumped. For explanation I have included two clps.
HomeI map shows a switch which is in my router. HomeII map shows a question mark in place of the switch. I am not sure where to go to correct this. Is the problem in the router or where?

Are you using Homegroup or Workgroup for your network?

The ability to completely identify all the networking equipment on the wire is not easy. Especially since nearly everything we use at home is "unmanaged". Depending on the direction going, devices may or may not be detected depending on how far down the line they are from other objects.

I wouldn't worry about it, it's not going to affect anything at all other than the visual for the network map. :)

Doc, both rigs are the same "home group".

Fseal, the rig fartherst from the router is the one with the question mark, your right everything is working fine.

Guess I'll just punt.
