Hi all experts

i can not use UNC path to access shared folder in fileserver,
ex:  \\fileserver
error message: \\fileserver network not fund

but I can use ipaddress to access shared folder
ex:\\ ------------success to open file.

other machines dont have this problem, only my machine have.
I have restarted computer, but the problem still have
I also put  fileserver into host file, but still doesnt work.

NO FireWall installed, only AVG 8.0 anti-virus installed in the machine
