Which name resolution should be used for home or workgroup network

MS provides many options for NetBIOS name resolution such as local cache lookup, WINS server query, broadcast, DNS server query, and LMHOSTS and HOSTS lookup. Check this page for more details: Name Resolutions Summary

For home or workgroup network without server, you may use the router (if you have one) as DNS server or ISP DNS. It is also recommended to enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP for the computer browsing.
