  • Any suggestions as to how to solve this problem will be appreciated.
  • Unfortunately it only lasted until I shut down Windows 7 but it did allow me to transfer the files I wanted and I was able to recreate the connection a second

Both computers are running Windows XP Home edition with updated service packs, and there are no other computers in the network. Goto system. My Computer Description was blank.

I'm confident that the problem lies with my laptop for reasons explained below.

beacause either their antivirus s/w blocks this feature..or people have no idea regarding network profile.... Type in "HOME" for all of them (for now). The Troubleshooter say that "Your broadband modem is experiencing connectivity issues" and "The network gateway is accessible, but Windows couldn’t receive network traffic from the Internet." What a ____ i need MSHOME. 2)As others here have suggested, make sure all Win 7 machines have changed their workgroup settings from "Home" toa"Work" network in the Network & Sharing Center, this enables the XP

Close the Registry Editor.8. I can see the folders, but when I try to open them, I get the ever popular: "\\Osiris\C {that's my desktop hard drive} is not accessible.

My work's wifi is the most frequent other network connection I use which is basically a public wifi. The PCs see each other in the LAN. Navigate to the following key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters4.
