Windows Networking (AKA the hardest part of windows) - Page 2

post #11 of 13
    So, if I understand the above correctly, "\\Couch" and the XP computer can communicate with each other fully, but "\\Cave" isn't able to access either of the other computers?  Can either of the other computers see or access "\\Cave" ?

I can pull files from \\Cave from the \\Couch no problem. However I cannot go in reverse.

    Here are some things to check on \\Cave.  While these instructions are for Windows 7, they will also work with slight modification on Vista and Windows 8:

  1. Press [Win]+[Pause/Break] to open the "System Properties" window (you can also right click "computer" and click properties to do the same thing).
  2. In the sidebar on the left, click "Advanced system settings"
  3. Click on the "Computer name" tab, and then click "Change"
  4. Make sure that "Workgroup" is selected, not "Domain"
  5. It would also be best if you selected the same workgroup name for each computer on your network (e.g. "HOME", like I did).

  6. Click [OK] as needed to back out of all the dialogs, and then close the Explorer window.
__________________________________________________
 
  1. Click on the network icon in the system tray.
  2. Click on "Open Network and Sharing Center"
  3. In the left sidebar, click "Change adapter settings"
  4. If there is more than one network adapter connected, identify the one that is connected to your Ethernet switcher or router.
  5. Right-click it and click "Properties"
  6. A dialog will come up and show a list of items associated with the connection.  Make sure that all of the items shown in the picture below are present and enabled:
  7. If an item I listed above is missing, click [Install] and match the icon of the missing item with the icon for "Client", "Service", or "Protocol", and then click [Add].  Follow the onscreen prompts to add the missing item.  Repeat for additional items if needed.
  8. If an item I listed above is not ticked, click the checkbox next to it to enable it.
  9. Next, double-click "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)"
  10. Click [Advanced], and then click on the "WINS" tab.
  11. Make sure that NetBIOS is enabled as shown below:

  12. Click [OK] as needed to back out of all the dialogs, and then close the Explorer window.
__________________________________________________
 
  1. Press [Win]+[R], type "services.msc", and press [Enter].
  2. Make sure that "Computer Browser" is started and set to "Automatic" start.
    • If it isn't set to "Automatic" start, double-click it, set "Startup type" to "Automatic" and click [OK].
    • If it isn't started, right-click it and click "Start"
  3. Make sure that "Function Discovery Provider Host" is set to "Manual" start.
  4. Make sure that "Function Discovery Resource Publication" is set to "Manual" start.
  5. Make sure that "Server" is started and set to "Automatic (delayed)" start.
  6. Make sure that "Workstation" is started and set to "Automatic" start.
  7. Close the Services window.
