    For some reason, my laptop seems to have stuck in the Shared network with a (3) next to its name. Normally I have 2 macs: MBP (named OAMBP) and a mac mini (named OAMacMini). Something happened a few weeks ago, and whenever I go into share from any of the macs, I see a OAMBP (3) computer (see the screenshot).
    It's somehow stuck there, and no matter how many times I restart both computers, it won't go away.
    Any suggestions?

    The (3) or (2) is a result of Bonjour's wireless wake on LAN. You can stop that from happening by unchecking the Wake for Network Access box in Energy Saver preferences. To get rid of the stuck machine, restart your network by power cycling the router and modem.

    Thank you intell, restarting the router did the trick.
    I do actually use the wake on LAN feature, so I guess I will have to deal with it for now this way, and hope that it will be resolved with the Mavericks...
