    I'm having a Strange problem. When i try to Explorer files in a network location by typing \\<Computer Name> it does not work, Network path not Found error appears. But i can browse files using IP Address.
    Whats Strange (to me) is:
    1. This Happen only at this particular machine only. I can Explorer files using the Computer name from other machines.
    2. nslookup shows the correct IP.
    3. I can connect to the file server using Remote Desktop by typing the Computer Name.

    I Hope there is someone who can Help me on this.

    I have 2 computers running Windows 7. I have both set up for Homegroup. How do I get the data from the other computer?
