I use windows 7. Before changing the name, I had one folder on the network, with read-only rights granted to everyone, and no need to login. So, no username or password dialog ever came up.

Yesterday, I changed the name of my computer, and I am no longer able to access this computer over the network, it gives me a login window. If I enter the username and password (which is nothing), it does not let me in. I have spent almost an hour playing about with all the settings in "advanced sharing settings", as well as removing and re-adding the folder to share, to try and get the same functionality as I had before the name change.

I am desperate. How do I fix this cluster****?

Have you tried sharing it by IP address? If that works without making you log in with no password then that's your answer.
How do I do that?

Any idea how to do this under Linux? Google doesn't help. If not, then any ideas as to what caused my original problem, and how to fix that?

EDIT: I found a method, and it still connects to the computer, and the login prompt still comes up. So, I can connect to my computer, I just can't get rid of, or get past, the login prompt that never used to come up. I don't want to get past the prompt, I want to get rid of it. Also note, exactly the same behaviour when I use a friends Windows machine.
