    Specs:
    macbook pro 2.33GHz 2GB 667 MHz DDR2 sdram, OSX 10.4.8
    Angry MBP won't see PC on network
    I am running Macbook pro which accesses router wirelessly. My PC is connected to router via ethernet.

    I have just upgraded MBP to OSX 10.5. (havent done 10.5.2 yet). Previously in 10.4.X the in the finder window the PC shared directory always appeared when connected. Now i cannot see it at all in the finder and do not know how to make it appear.

    I have tried the following:

    - Creating new network through network wizard on PC Desktop and enabled sharing for relevant folders.
    - enabled sharing on all relevant folders on desktop
    - enabled file sharing, printer sharing, internet sharing and bluetooth sharing in System Prefs on MBP.
    - tried to enter IP address of desktop in System Prefs>network>Advanced>wins

    I really am stumped and frustrated as it is severely inhibiting my workflow.

    Any suggestions?

    In the System Prefs>network>Advanced>wins did you see your workgroup in the drop down menu It maybe just that that is your problem if you can't see your PC. Quite a few have discovered this as the fault.
    I have a software firewall on my laptop which I forget to turn off sometimes too

    well i don't see the name i set for the workgroup. And i can't delete the netbios name, which i assume is the Macbook's.
    Furthermore there is no firewall in place.
    Stumped!
