XP home computer not showing up

Hi,

I have 4 computers and a PS2 hooked up to a time warner cable connection and all computers and PS2 work like a charme connecting to the internet.

The problem I'm having is that the one computer that has XP home on it (the rest is running XP pro) is not showing up on the my network places, all the others are!!!! The thing is, if you search for this xp home computer it WILL show up in the search and you CAN share files with it!!!!

I probably have to tell the xp home computer to publish it's name on the network, but were do I do this????

I want it to be visible on the my network places all the time in stead of searching for this computer the whole time, anybody got an answer or solution!!!!

Thanks,

Richard

I wouldn't trust the Network Neighboorhood folder, but there is one thing you could do, make sure that atleast one computer has the Computer Browser service set to automatic, this should make it the master browser and keep the network computer list updated.

If you can access the PC by UNC path, then I wouldn't worry about it. \\Computername in Run.
