Not all computers showing in workgroup settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have noticed in both XP and Vista, that in a workgroup setting, not all laptops show up when clicking on "show all devices"  For example, laptops 1, 2 and 3 might show on laptop 4.  Laptops 7, 8 and 9 would show up on laptop 1.  It appears to be completely random.  However, all laptops can successfully ping each other.  You can set up a shared folder on one laptop, and all others can access it, edit files, etc.  It is just that the graphical representation doesnt appear to work.
