Computer disappears off network

  skeletal 19:03 02 Oct 2007

I had my laptop and main computer both on and was looking at files on both, from the main computer. My son turned his laptop on, and as expected, that appeared in Explorer. However, the strange thing was that my laptop disappeared!

But, if I Search for my laptop, it appears instantly, and I can still access all the files.

If I right click, in Explorer, and do a refresh, my laptop remains hidden from view.

Why can I no longer see my laptop, even though it is still there??
