    Hi,
    I have 2 desktops wired and 3 laptops all wireless connected with router, had this setup for a few years now. Problem that has arisen is that as my home network name was IIYAMA and it is now playing up, cant see some of the pc's and connect to there respective folder, especially the printer which is USB to the main pc, i was wondering how to remove the IIYAMA workgroup from all pc's and create a new one called 'banana' or something, anyone any ideas on how to do this, using several different version of windows, XP, Vista and Windows 7. The pc with the printer is Vista.

    Under network settings for each computer, just enter the new network name for all computers. once you do that they should all see each other, as long as your setings a for that network.
