Added a new laptop to network.  It has internet.   I can ping existing hosts from new laptop however I cant find existing machines using map command either using \\ipaddress\sharename or \\hostname\sharename or simply \\ipaddress in command line. Its says network provider not found.  Existing machines can map to each other if needed. I change hosts file but still no change on new laptop.

The machines are in a workgroup
