Windows 7: Network vs Network 2 vs Network 5.

07 Mar 2013   #1

DELL Win 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
Network vs Network 2 vs Network 5.

This one is driving me crazy....

I have THREE Windows 7 computers ( called PC01, PC02, PC05). My other computer are XP.

I have ONE home network

I do not use homegroups on any of them machines.

I can see all my Win 7 machines, from any Win 7 machine.

-Why am I seeing a DIFFERENT network name on each of the machines
-How is it determining its name ( iE why would the PC02 machine be given a name OF Network 5)
-Can I fix it so they all have the same name?
