Network Apple Computer To Windows Network

Apple-iOS-OSX Microsoft-Windows

The one thing that people forget when networking an Apple computer to a Windows network is making sure the workgroup name is the same as the Windows workgroup name.

Windows 7 and Windows Vista usually use the Workgroup Name

So how do you do this on your Apple Computer?

Open Network in the Settings panel

Click on the Advanced tab

Open the Wins tab

Type workgroup in the workgroup name

Press Ok

Then press Apply as it returns to the Network panel

Also make sure you have the correct settings to share files
