Help with win7 please - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
This is a post just made on win7 forum so maybe u can see more specific details bout the complex issues at hand:

hi all !
i have big mindf*** going on here..
i have 3 computers,

A - win7 ultimate x64 (PC) (LAN connected)
B - win7 professional x64 (laptop) (WLAN connected)
C - win7 ultimate x32 (laptop) (WLAN connected)

Theyre all connected on the same HUAWEI B260a wireless gateway, and theyre all under the same workgroup and connected within a homegroup
Standard shared public libraries (music, picture..) are visible and accessible for all of them with each other.

PROBLEM is @ network location
1) when i access from computer A to comp's B hard drive partition its all ok but it cannot access shared partition on computer C (but its visible)
2) computer B cannot access either one of their partitions
3) computer C can access everything and all

All of the HDs partitions are shared

* WHEN I SHARE FILES OR FOLDERS WITHIN ANY PARTITION ON ANY COMP, THAT FILE IS VISIBLE AND ACCESSIBLE FOR EACH ONE OF THEM..


BIG QUESTION

how can i share my PARTITIONS and make them accessible for each computer without having permission troubles?

ive even assigned static ip adresses for each computer (though they comunicate with each other ok so it wasnt necessary to do that)

ofc, partitions are shared, FWs are disabled, all of the necessary services are enabled, there are no AVs blocking traffic
- but because of line under * stated above, nothing of this is actually important

Please help and ease my mind.

Ty in advance..

I have a feeling you are trying to access your other drives through your network and not through your homegroup.

Go to start, click computer.

On the left of the new magic window that pops up, you see a list of common folders like music, pictures, video, computer, and a list of any installed hard drives. Above computer you should see "homegroup". Below computer you should see "network". Make sure you are clicking on the right one.

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

PING each computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. You can obtain the IP address of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG. This should work for any Windows version.

All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer browsing to function properly. File & Print Sharing has to be enabled on any computer you wish to share files or printers from. You also need to actually share the resource in question from My Computer, right click on the drive/printer/folder, and select sharing.

If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible in Network Neighborhood, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

While the default NetBIOS setting is correct for normal network configurations, it's possible for it to be altered, and it costs nothing to make sure it's correct. NETBIOS over TCP/IP must be enabled for normal network browsing.
