Specs: Windows 7
My new desktop runs win7, but I cannot find any of the computers on my old home network. It seems the new computer is on a network of its own called "Network". (so original). How do I find the other network?

Likely the rest of your home computers have a different workgroup name. Likely it's something like "mshome" or "workgroup". You need to change the workgroup on your Windows 7 PC from "Network" to whatever the workgroup name is for the rest of your PC's. Then it should see them all just fine.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
