    Dear all,

    I followed John's suggestion to use the command " Browstat status "

    It shows the following message:

    Status for domain Workgroups on transport
    \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{xxxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxx}

    Browsing is active on domain.

    Master browser name is: PC1

    Could not open key in registry, error = 5
    Unable to determine build of browser master : 5
    \\\\PC1 . Version:5.01 Flages 71603 NT Potential Backup Master

    3 backup servers retrieved from Master PC1

    \\PC1
    \\PC2
    \\PC3

    There are 43 servers in domain Workgroups on transport
    \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{xxxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxx}
    There are 3 domains in domain Workgroups on transport
    \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{xxxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxx}

    So, how to solve the problem?

    Thanks,

    tlee

    since you started a new thread, when you ask
    "how to solve the problem?"
    What IS the problem ?
    can't see a resource ?

    Hi Bobb,

    Thanks for your message. It is so useful.

    My previous post as below:
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Dear all,

    I have the problem of the Internet connection sharing.

    I find that all network PCs are disappeared at "View my workgroup computers"
    sometimes.
    Then I need to reboot the PCs and it can shows again. But it will happen
    again later.

    Does anyone know how to solve this problem.

    P/S: PCs consist of WinXP (SP3), WinMe, Vista(IPv4) and Win7(IPv4)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Since, the happen of missing computer in network is so often. Could you
    inform me the setting about let all PCs to update their master browser list
    themselves while lost the browser list information?

    Many Thanks !

    tlee

    After making sure all comps are on the the same workgroup. take the host
    computer and check the following.
    support.microsoft.com/kb/177078 -
    I have had to do this little alteration many times ,I was using four comps
    at that time an also depends on the volume
    material size you are sharing.

    1. Onsite Router ? or just one connection out?
    NIC cards are VERY cheap - might save cost of card by savings in having an
    "extra PC " always turned on.

    2. I haven't used ICS on Win7 yet, so
    Do a Google search for
    internet connection sharing static ip (IPv4)
    and you'll see:
    http://www.sevenforums.com/network-sharing/97215-sharing-internet-using-static-ip-ipv4.html
    windows 7 we must set ip static (using IPv4) to 192.168.137.1
    ?????
    Otherwise:
    3. With 4 pc's sharing an internet connection ...
    If one connection, just give them all a static IP and use the host's IP
    address
    Don't bother with browsing for a NAME
    example:
    PC1=192.168.0.1 = one with ICS enabled
    PC2 =192.168.0.102
    PC3=192.168.0.103
    PC4=192.168.0.104
    PC5=192.168.0.105
    and rather than referring to them as PC1, PC2 etc for routing
    If
    192.168.0.1 is the master than just DEFINE it to be so on the others -
    always.
    Default Gateway ALWAYS = 192.168.0.1
    and make sure all domain names are the same / use MSHOME.NET
