    Does any one know how to turn of the sound that plays when another computer connects to the network? I've looked every where and can't find any info on how to do it.

    I'm pretty sure that its other computers connecting to the network causing this sound. Its relatively random, and not listed under the sounds in the sound option of system preferences. It used to not really be a problem but since I just moved into the college dorm it goes off all the time.

    What sound is played? Is it a Mac OS sound? Go to System Preferences >> Sound >> Sound Effects to determine which one or if it is one from there.
    Have you checked or unchecked
    "Play user interface sound effects",
    "Play feedback when volume is changed" or
    "Play Front ROw sound effects"?

    And what do you mean by "when another computer connects to the network"?

    I assume you have a network at your university all the students can use. You use it too, and when someone else connects to it, a sound plays?

    Or do you mean when someone connects to your Mac and you see it in the Finder?

    Do you use a VPN tunnel for user and password verification?

    Never mind, I figured it out. Turns out it was connect360, and every time some one would connect an xbox to the network, it would make a noise.
