Hi, I have an MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum Mobo. It includes 2 diff. onboard NICs, 1 is a Realtek, the other Nvidia. The Realtek works fine, no problem at all there. The problem is with the Nvidia NIC, when I plug my Ethernet cable into the Nvidia NIC I cannot view my workgroup computers. I can go online and Remote Desktop into my other computers, but I just cant view the networked computers in my workgroup, therefore the file and print sharing service is unable to be utilized. I cannot for the life of me figure out why this is. The following is a list of what I have done already.

Disabled the Nvidia hardware firewall, and the Windows firewall, and anything else that filters out communications.
Enabled NetBIOS.
Restarted PC many times.
Verified that File and Print sharing is installed and enabled on the Nvidia NIC.
