When i go to see what devices are on my home network. Here's the scenario.

1) Laptop 1 (W7 only) can see Laptop 2 (W7 dual boot with W8).
2) Laptop 2 (when booting into W7) can see Laptop 1 AND it can also see itself as W8. This means there are 3 devices when there are only 2.
3) Laptop 2 (when booting into W8) can only see itself, not Laptop 1.

This is interesting.

Thanks, Ted, for the update. Seems like you're having as much fun with Win8 8102 as I am. :)

I can't access any of the other computers on the network in Win 8 Dev, but everything works fine in Win 7.

I should think so - but it's not all that major, so I'm not expecting it very soon. I think they have other bigger issues to deal with right now. :3
