    I was having similar problems seeing computers on the network. This solved my problems. I'm not using a NAS or home network, just the network explorer.

    I don't think SMB1 is much of a risk running in VM. They are suggesting mapping the network drives, I have done that also and they show up every time. But the networks sometimes don't show and you do a reboot and they show, I have been patient, but I think its time for them to step up and fix the damn thing.
    Yes, I wasn't too keen on turning Samba on, but it worked! And yes, the unpredictability of how the network manifests on any given day is frustrating. Also, if for example one sets file sharing on in Network & Sharing options, one should not have to tick any options hidden elsewhere, surely. There needs to be a discrete place to say "Yes, see my machine, and yes, see these folders etc".

    Thanks to all for their contributions and good luck. I turned Samba on on my PC upstairs, rebooted, rebooted the served W7 PC downstairs and it could see my PC again. So that's better (as long as it lasts!)
