    My PC desktop uses the network "bizz1" as how it was set up. I couldn't make the network to connect for my new Macbook, so I called the internet provider. The tech told me that the network now is "bizz123." So, I used the new network name in the MAcbook to set up the network connection. It worked. But, now I am trying to transfer some files from my PC to MacBook, yet I found that the PC desktop still using "bizz1." I should have asked while on the phone, but I did not think about it then. Although I still could transfer data from PC and Macbook by using different networks, why does the internet company creates a new network for me???
