Hi, I have a wireless network connection and when I go to My Network Places, I am able to see all my computers and such running on the network, but only for a split second, I can catch their names real click but before I have a chance to do anything, they disappear and I can't for the life of me figure it out. Why is this, has someone locked me out of my network or is there something special I need to do? I have no clue... Thanks either way.

For each computer, please do this.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following two commands:

nbtstat -n

ipconfig /all

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I can do that for my computer, and maybe another one, but the other are my kids and are password protected. I try not to get into their business, mostly because my son knows a lot more about any of this stuff than me . I can give you my results for here, but what should I do about the other computers, should I force them to give me the passwords, or is there another way? Im so confused.

Sorry to double post, but it won't let me edit. I was wondering what the exact cause of the problem was as well if you knew it right off hand. Thanks.

There is nothing there that will compromise their privacy. If you can't get the information, it limits the help I can provide.

Ok, I will try, one other thing, today when I check in the same place (My Network Places), it shows the computers on my network for some reason, they don't disappear, though I haven't changed anything. The problem appears to be solved, unless something like that happens again, which I hope it doesn't
