    Can't see computer on network

    Hi there,

    I have a desktop and a laptop at home which I use for work. I need to access the desktop files using the laptop, and vice versa.

    I had it working before (i.e. I could see and access the laptop via the desktop and vice versa) but it's stopped for some reason. I can't see either computer on the network!

    I've ticked all the relevant file sharing settings (I think) but they just wont appear the network folder.

    I had an issue a month or two ago where I'd set up a PIN on the laptop, rather than a password, and having read other forums, this is apparently an issue. Once I removed the PIN and just had a password on each computer, they could 'speak' to each other again. But there's definitely no PIN/password issues now as I've not changed them since.

    Can anyone help please?!

    Have you tried rebooting the Gateway?
