Network problem

Hi, few days ago I reinstalled my Windows 7 on my personal computer, and i made a fail. I named the computer the same neme as i named my laptop. Now i have a problem. When i try to go to the network places i cant see the laptop from the computer and cannot see the computer from the laptop. Can the problem be that they have the same network name? How to solve that. Thx annyway

You can't have two computers with the same name on the same network...

Click START right click on MY COMPUTER , click PROPERTIES

GO TO YOUR BOTTOM RIGHT, CLICK CHANGE SETTINGS FOR YOUR COMPUTER NAME
