Chapter 23. Accessing and Using Your Network > Turning On Network Discovery

Turning On Network Discovery

You can’t do much in the way of networking in Windows Vista unless you have network discovery turned on. Network discovery is a new setting that enables you to see other computers on your network and to work with their shared resources. Network discovery also enables other computers on the network to see your computer and access your shared resources.

To ensure that network discovery is on, click the Network icon in the taskbar’s notification area and then click Network and Sharing Center. (Alternatively, select Start, Control Panel, Network and Internet, Network and Sharing Center.) In the Sharing and Discovery section, if you see Off beside the Network Discovery setting, click Off, click the Turn On Network Discovery option, click Apply, and then enter your UAC credentials.
