    Hello,
    New to Windows 7. Used LAN and managed to see all PCs and Devices once
    I changed Workgroup name. Now added Wireless and removed LAN. Can only
    see Media Device and printer, no PCs etc. As Workgroup is PC specific
    not sure what to config now... thanks.

    Looked at some details and I can confirm it is a Work network and
    config'd to be Public (thought this was down to firewalls!). I can
    see the folders if I go in by IP address. So why does the wired LAN
    work fine and the Wireless not? Many thanks.
