    Don't know the answer to your question, but why don't you just secure your network?

    My wife and I use our network. We both have file sharing allowed, but how do I "see" her computer?

    I've got a linksys router. You have to log on to it from your web browser and then you can see a list of clients. Other brands(dlink, netgear) probably work the same. Try and find your manual and see what address you have to type in. Good luck

    same here. I have a belkin, and when i log in (usually http://192.168.2.1 or http://192.168.1.1 ), one of the menus shows the MAC address of each machine connected.
