Chapter 23. Accessing and Using Your Network > Adding a Computer or Device

Adding a Computer or Device

Previous versions of Windows showed network resources in either Network Neighborhood or My Network Places, but those resources were mostly limited to domains, workgroups, and computers. Windows Vista is much more aware of other types of devices connected to the network, including media players, wireless access points, routers, and print servers. These devices usually appear in the network map, but some devices might not. To add those devices, open the Network and Sharing Center and click the Add a Wireless Device link in the task pane. Vista immediately begins searching for network devices. If it finds any, it displays them in a list; you can decide which ones you want to add to your network.
