    Disappearance of Other Computers in Finder
    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.
