If you'd like, type system information in the start menu search box. On the screen that opens, ctrl+s.

Zip or rar the saved file and attach to a post. We may be able to figure something out with that.

Also, from command prompt, copy and paste this then hit enter:

ipconfig /all

then also attach a screenshot of that along with the attachment from above.

Also some are at other locations. Thanks everyone!
Sorry to just jump in here, but in the above quote you say you can see 10 PCs when you view full map. When you open my computer and on the bottom left click on the network icon what do you see.

Hi and welcome
S

Just to be clear you are on a workgroup, but what was set up as the newtorking component in win 7. Win & homegroup uses IPv6, work group and older uses IPv4. If your CO workgroup is IPv4 and win 7 homegroup thats the problem.

Good Luck and welcome aboard

Pat-- I clicked on the network and there are 0 items shown.

Ken--(love your cat pic) I am not part of a homegroup. I am under a workgroup. I have the IPv6 unchecked and use IPv4 with my static IP address. [IMG]file:///C:/Users/ITMANA%7E1/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG]

If you can please do what torrentg asked in his post above. Not sure why you are not seeing even your machine in your network. You've confirmed that network discovery is on, perhaps just check to make sure in the properties of your network card, that Client for Microsoft Networks is checked and File and Printer Sharing for Micorosoft Networks is checked. Also please confirm that your machine name is conflicting with anyother machine name on the network, netbios names can be funny...not likely but it's worth a look otherwise we've all got to be missing something

Pat-- I'm sorry I didn't see torrentg's post. I figure I am just overlooking something. I'm thinking about formatting and starting fresh. What do you think?

Thanks guys!

Also no one can ping me even after that command was executed correctly.

Sounds kinda drastic to me. If you have the time and anymore patience left please wait for more input. Give everyone a moment or two to comment on your most recent post.

Oh yeah I'll wait. I would like to know what I'm doing wrong so if it happens again I know what to do.

I noticed that your network is using a Class B private reserved subnet (which is perfectly fine) however, in my experience those types of addressing schemes sometimes are often generated by a more sophisticated devices like a Cisco Pix, which may very well explain your problems with pinging on your network since some firewall appliances don't like ICMP packets bouncing around on their network. That of course is no help to you but it may help us....a previous post asked if your computer was the only computer with ping problems? Can you ping from and to, two other machines on your network? Still should be able to see your own machine on your network

Yes I can ping all other devices on my network. Also I have been able to use 2 other pc's and am able to ping with no problem. I just can't ping my computer from another.
