    Hey everyone,

    I've just got back from having my Macbook repaired (went in with Tiger and a dead hard drive, they sent it back with a new hard drive with leopard on due to having lost their Tiger disks!) anyway long story short, in finder's left hand menu bar I used to have a Network icon for browsing my local network but it's not there anymore and I can't figure out why. Anyone got any ideas how to get it back?

    That's because the Network option doesn't exist in Leopard anymore - instead, any available network shares SHOULD show up in the shared section without having to browse for them. However, it is not the most reliable - many people, myself included, have problems getting shared computers and devices to show up.

    press shift+command+k and see if you can connect to it from that.

    Network should appear under idisk in that list.

    Are you sure that you are connected to the network?
