Create A Map Of Your Vista Network

network In Windows Vista you can create a map of your networked computers to see how they all connect together.

The network Map in Windows Vista makes network diagrams of the connections between network devices that can be used to troubleshoot connectivity problems. Network Map uses a discovery protocol called Link-Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) that queries other devices on the network to determine how the network is organized.

If all your computers are Windows Vista you will have no problems, but if you have XP computers on your network they won’t show up in the proper place. So you will have to download and install Microsoft KB 922120 The Link Layer Topology Discovery patch on all XP computers.

Here’s how to set it up.

  1. Click the Start Orb. Right click Network and choose Properties.
