[quote=Goober]...Uhm... yeh, you cant do that in Home edition and it really doesn't matter so long as you know the name of the pc. And I did say the word easily, I never said you couldnt see them. Overall he just needs to change the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 instead of 255.255.0.0.[/quote]\n \nNot neccessarily true. As long as both computers are set to 255.255.0.0 then they should still be able to see each other.\n \nFor my internal IPs, I use 10.100.X.X for my desktops, 10.150.X.X for my laptops, and 10.255.X.X for my lab.\n \nEverything can see each other, and my subnet mask is 255.0.0.0. This way if someone does break into my network, they will have to scan the entire Class A to find all of my computers.
