    What version of Vista do you have? And is this in a domain environment?

    business, and yes it is in a domain. I was thinking about installing Microsoft TCP/IP version 6 protocol on both machines. do you think this will help?

    Enabling IPv6 will not help this issue. Make sure you specify a working WINS server, and manually enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP in the TCP/IP advanced settings.
