Cannot see my own computer in "View Workgroup Computers"

    WinXPPro-SP2, All patches installed. Happens if I'm using SP2 Firewall
    or not - as well as happens if I am using a router or not. Firewall &
    router are preferred setup. I can ping myself. and if I open 'My
    computer' and type in \\<computername>, I see the shared resources.

    Thoughts?

    Somehow NetBios had fallen out of my Network connection. Once I jammed
    it back in there, I saw myself again. D'oh!!
