Computer Not Shown in My Network Places

The problem was (which i finally figured out myself) was that the Computer Discription Name that I configured when running the network setup wizard was to long, and was causing the computer not to be displayed. To fix this problem i did the following:

Open Control Panel
Double-Click the System Icon
Click the 'Computer Name' Tab up top
Change the computer discription to a shorter name

    Yet another annoyance which may be caused by any number of things, not all of which are obvious. Install File and Printer Sharing under connection properties? Check. Shorten Computer Description Name? Grrrr.

    Countering the idiots that rated this a 1. Who would be so stupid as to condemn someone for trying to help. Comment 1 and comment 3 deserve to be gutted.
