    I have a wifi home network which works great except for one thing: my Vista computers will not show up in the left-hand column in Leopard's finder on my Macbook. The only way for me to connect to them from the Macbook is by selecting Finder -> Go -> Connect to Server then enter their corresponding ip's.

    From any Vista computer on my network I'm able to see and explore the Macbook. I can drop, edit, and take files off of it, and vice versa when I do the SMB://ip from the Mac.

    Any idea what could be going on here? I have network discovery, file sharing and everything else (excluding password file sharing) turned on in Vista, and in Leopard I have file sharing and printer sharing turned on. Under file sharing -> options I have all three (AFP, FTP and SMB) checked as well.

    In Vista UAV is turned off, although the firewall is on.

    Is there something I'm missing?
