    I have a network at home set up with a cable modem which goes to a Netgear switch which then goes to the two computers. I think I have all the settings set up correctly but here is the kick in the pants, I can't see the other computer on the network just by regularly going to network neighborhood, but I can use the search option and search for the other computer and find it there but it still doesn't show up in the regular network area. What am I doing wrong? The stupid search works but the big view doesn't!

    Does this make sense to anyone? Can someone please try to help me!
