I have a SOHO Windows Server 2003 network with three clients, all Windows 7 (upgraded from XP and Vista). The network has been up and running for about a year, with no problems. Since the client upgrades, the server intermittently disappears from the "Network" window listing in Windows Explorer. Sometimes it's there; sometimes it's not.
I can get to the network easily enough by entering "\MyServer" in the address bar--that gives me normal access, just as if I had double-clicked the server icon. And the server shows up when I do an Active Directory search. The server is just missing from the list displayed in the Windows 7 Network window, which suggests to me that the problem is a configuration tweak on the Windows clients. BTW, I have
Any suggestions on what I need to do to get the server to appear consistently in the Windows 7 Network window?
