Hi,

Check its "Workgroup" name. Rightclick on "My Computer"--> click on "Computer

Name" Tab ----> check the workgroup name. If you want to change the

workgroup name then click on "Change" and enter the right workgroup name.

Click on Start--->select "Run" ---> type NETSETUP.CPL and click on OK.

Just run that network setup wizard and follow the instructions.

i have doen the network setup thing many times, all my other computers show me in network, but not this one.
workgroups are also same.

please help me

Sorry for the late reply.

Check your firewall.
can you ping to other computers ?
Open your local area connection properties window and make sure all the options are selected.
