Network sharing problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have setup another PC along side the one im on now.

I have a wired router connecting them and sharing the internet.

I want to share a drive called Program Files so I can share my programs.

Its shared on my PC, but when I try \\\\(computersname) from the other PC, nothing shows up, and I get a error message.

I have made sure all the usual checks like same PC name, work group etc. Anyone any ideas?

If you haven't done this yet then do it. It solved my problems

open network connections --->right click on you're active network connection click properties


Choose internet protocols click on properties


in the next window click on advanced then in the next window choose WINS and enable it as shown in the picture



save it and click ok a couple of times you should now be back to this window now click install


Add protocol


here you should see something named WINS or NWlink install it and se if it help
