    Networking 2 computers thru router: problem seeing the other computer

    I have two computers at home using the same wireless router. I named
    one of them HerLapTop.

    I tried to see HerLapTop in my computer. In address bar of My
    Computer, I typed in \\HerLapTop and my computer could not "see" her
    returning error.

    However, if I typed in the ip address like \\123.123.0.1 I was able to
    see the shared folders and printers.

    How do I make it so I can see HerLopTop instead of using the ip
    address.
