Home Network Browsing Problem

  Malcolm Loer 12:44 19 May 2005

I have a PC connected to ADSL/Router using LAN and a Laptop connected to the same ADSL/ROUTER using Wi/Fi, both running on WinXP. When Browsing network places I can see the machine that I am on, but not he other one. I can not see the other PC on the network by going to RUN on the start menu and typing: "\\OTHERCOMPUTERNAME", but when typing, "\\", which is the IP address for the other computer then I can see it and map any shared folders that is on the other computer.

The two computers can both access the Internet and both of them are using the same WORKGROUP.

I think it must be the firewalls local to the PC and Laptop(Trend Micro) that is prevention me to see the other computer, but I do not know where to look.
