I have several users who are using various editions of Mac OS 10.6 and 10.7.  I have noticed that it takes quite a while for these computers to gather up the computers that exist on my Windows network.  Is there any way to speed up this process that you know of?

Hi,

Perhaps you could map the drives to the network hosts (computers on the network) that need to be accessed.

I mapped to the network host and it still is not very fast.
