In the Finder window under Devices there is a Shared section. I the computers are sharing something they will show up there.

If you know the IP address of the machine try,

Connecting to an SMB (Windows) server
smb://<ip address> eg.: smb://192.168.1.2

Connecting to an NFS server
nfs://<ip address>

Sorry I may not have made this clear. Last night I had 10.4 installed and it was talking to the network no problem. I was able to put files on my external hard drive but now after installing Leopard it recognizes that their is a network hence me being able to access the internet. However for some reason it wont show any devicecs on the network not even my BT Home Hub is there any reason for this that you nice people can think of?

You're the 2nd poster that has had this issue ?? Here's the 1st thread.

Unfortunately there was no solution mentioned.

Do you have 10.5.1 installed?

Hi all

I came upon this while searching for the same solution - all my computers on my network were coming up in 10.4 but when I switched to 10.5 they all disappeared. I read solutions ranging from typing unix commands to finding all the IP addresses and mapping directly.

The solution for me was this: Keep doing software update until you get the last 10.5.2 update and the latest firmware update (my Macbook Pro is now MBP31.0070.B02). And then shutdown. Reboot and see if that works. Worked for me. Now I can see all the other Mac and PC's on my network and share files just like the old days of 10.4.

Hope this helps someone!
