    Sorry if someone has already discussed this, but I ran a search and didn't find anything relevant.

    Has anybody else noticed that Apple seems to have finally fixed the SMB (Windows) networking issues in 10.5.7?

    Since I updated I've been delighted to constantly see my Network window filled with CRT monitors displaying the BSoD (and a couple of Macs) on my school network. :p

    I'm so glad they finally fixed it, an issue that's been present since 10.5.0.

    I haven't really noticed any difference.

    I have a Buffalo NAS running pretty much all the time with SMB enabled, an Ubuntu server and several Windows Machines.

    Leopard seems to just toss a coin to decide if they'll show up or not.

    Out of all of them, the NAS appears the most often, but then again I'd expect that given that it runs 99% of the time.

    Right now, the NAS is showing up, but the Windows Vista machine I have running isn't.

    The Windows Vista machine sees the NAS and this MacBook without any issues.

    This is one of the first things I noticed after updating to 10.5.7. I can also now print/communicate wirelessly with my Canon iP5200R again. These two things made the update well worth it to me :)
