TROUBLESHOOTING NETWORK CONNECTIVITY

NEW COMPUTERS DON’T COME TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD

The Annoyance:

I added a new computer to my network, but it didn’t appear in My Network Places or Network Neighborhood on any of the other computers. I know the cabling and the network settings are correct, but I have to reboot all the computers on the network to see a new computer, which is really annoying.

The Fix:

You don’t have to reboot all the computers to see a newly added computer on your network. Just wait 12 minutes. Honest. Could I make that up? Go have a cup of coffee, empty the dishwasher, or change all the burned-out light bulbs in the house. Then open the network folder again, or press F5 to refresh the display if you didn’t close the folder. You should now see the new computer.
