"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Make sure your network is set to Private and not Public. Right click on your network icon in the task tray and select Open Network and Sharing center. Look at the "View your active networks" area and under the network name it should read "Private network".
