    Need help with my new network...
    Well, I got my new macbook today and, as expected, its much better than my pc's. However, my macbook is on the same network as the 2 pc's that I have and for some reason I can only access the files on one of the pc's and when i try to access the other I get told that the alias name doesn't exist. What could be the problem?

    I guess that this would depend on how your network is arranged, and whether this ever worked before. It sounds a little like you may have the two PCs behind a single router perchance, and your Mac off a different place?
