    Hi,

    In Finder > Network, an unknown computer shows up. Does that mean someone else is connected to my WiFi network? Or are the computers in the Network section found via Bonjour or something like that.

    Can anyone help? Thanks.

    Do you have a networkable printer somewhere on your network? I noticed that my Brother printer now appears in the finder list, and it didn't in SL. Side question-anyone know how to remove that?

    I do! Thanks a lot... that must be it. The name starts with BRN, etc., etc.

    In Lion, I have that whole shared section turned off in the Preferences for Finder, for the devices section I only show my Mac, in which I can access all my hard drives, network stuff, etc., I like the clean look of it.
