Dear Mac Experts:

I bought an Intel-based MacBook a year ago. It currently runs OS X version 10.5.8

In the beginning, I recall the other PC's in my home network used to automatically show up in Finder, under Shared.

However, lately I could no longer get the PC's to appear in Finder. I am really puzzled as I have not modified any settings. I suspect it has to do with Apple software updates. Could anyone shine some light on my problem?

Thank you.

With regards,
Dan

Have you been into Finder/Preferences to see what check boxes are selected?

Hi Collin:

Yes I have. My setting is exactly the same as what you show above i.e. everything is checked under SHARED.

Cheers,
Dan

Have u looked in Sharing of Sys Prefs - for more detailed suggestions you will need to give some info on your LAN viz wireless/ethernet. i am no longer on Leopard so someone else can chip in.
