    Having a problem with network, all of the computers on the network dont show up. Is there any way of refreshing the network or something?

    A little more details would be nice.
    PCs or Macs, router model and brand, what exactly you are trying to do, etc...

    Are you on a wireless network? If so, have you tried resetting the wireless router?

    I am the only mac on the network, all others run xp, oh and the computer which asigns the internet connection (there are 2, one cable one adsl) runs freebsd.
    The routers are made by cisco.
    I am trying to access files over the network on other computers.

    If the win xp computers have a third party software firewall installed that could be the problem. I had Norton Internet Security on my Win XP PC and my iBook couldn't see the drives/files on it until I turned it off.

    Or if you did the default install of Windows XP's Service Pack 2, and the Windows Firewall is on. You can go to the control panel to turn that off. Then share a folder, and your computer should show up in the Finder's Network area.
