Network Neighborhood thru network Subnet

By colin1 ·
I am putting in a new network which will be broken down into different subnets for different locations
eg Site 1 - 192.1.1.1
Site 2 - 192.1.2.1
Site 3 - 192.1.3.1
Each location will be connected via an ACT router.

When I click on network neighborhood when on a PC at Site 2 I cannot see any of the PCs at
Site 1 or Site 3.

Is there anyway I can configure the network so i can see all PCs no matter what subnet I am on.

Thanks

Just thought I'd add the fact that WINS would also lower the network traffic. Another solution would be to use an LMHOSTS file on each PC. I think the best solution is to use WINS and in the logon scripts for your clients copy a LMHOSTS file containing key servers and workstations.... best of both worlds

WINS is definitely the best answer for traffic and speed. Changing your subnets would be bad (unless the router acts as a bridge and is configured as such). One thing to check is to make sure the router is not filtering ports 137-139. These are the ports used for NetBIOS, and are commonly filtered on IP routers.
