After I upgraded my Win 7 to Win 8 can I not access my drives on the LAN network. I can ping the network. When selecting Network in Explore can I not see the network:

I can manually navigate to the device without any problem. I the Sharing centre I have Turn on automatic setup of network connected devices and Turn on file and print sharing. The network is not Win 7 / 8 so Homegroup is not the case, only regular LAN network.

The LAN adapter is part of the motherboard Realtech PCI GBE Controller. I have installed the latest driver which supports Win 8. In the process of fixing the problem I uninstalled the driver in the Device Manager and scanned for new hardware, the problem was then fixed however, only until the next reboot.

I do not know if it is a user error or lack of understanding from my side. On the WIN 7 I was able to browse directly to the folders on my network. Meaning I was able to access data directly from Explore. When I had the problem I did try to use the Map drive, but again I was not able to browse to the network drive. Today I typed in the Server Name and Folder for mapping and also as “add a network location”. Now the Mapping ok and I can browse to the network drive in Explore.

Problem is fixed, have can we close the ticket without accepting a Solution?
