Windows 7 cannot browse network shares
Posted on 2010-08-25
I have a win 7 Pro notebook that is part of a peer to peer network. I have a windows 2003 server and several other windows xp units.
up until yesterday the win 7 nb had no issues using mapped drives or browsing the network. rebooted this morning and no access to mapped drives and cannot see anything of the other systems under network.
I've rebuilt the TCP/IP stack and winsock via netsh.
I've updated the drivers.
I've verified that Netbios over tcp/ip is running.
Network discovery is turned on.
file & printer sharing is enabled.
Windows update did 2 compatibility updates last night so I restored to an earlier system point. No go.
I can ping the ip address or \\name of the server. But I cannot access any of the shares from explorer, run, etc. As a test, I shared a folder on the win7 system and the win XP & 2003 server can access the share.
What am I missing?
