I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 (Upgrade) Home Premium to try to resolve printer install problems.
All seemed to work OK.  I installed one of my shared printers at home office and that worked fine.
I introduced it via wireless to an office network
Now, I can't get to any of the network shares without "Enter Network Password" dialog coming up!!
This is unsat.  None of the other computers on the network (all XP) do this.
I have turned off the local Guest account.
I have set LmCompatibilityLevel to 2 and also had tried 1.
