Windows 7: Need help resolving "Enter Network Password" issue

Ok, now this is bizarre.

Resumed the Netbook intending to just go ahead and set it up since it's clear formatting hasn't fixed anything. Tried the network connection again, it works. It still works. And I'm actively transferring my backup now.

Why? What changed? I cannot believe this will last, and, frankly, I'm afraid to do anything or even touch it out of fear it'll stop working again. Which is annoying, because I have to in order to install the drivers I need, nevermind updates.

I'm not considering this resolved yet, because I'm not sure I did anything to fix it.

Chev, did what you said and it works along with everything else, just like in my post above. However, I feel pretty sure this was something I tried yesterday (I tried a LOT of things yesterday, it's a bit of a blur) and it failed then.

Like I said though, I'm not confident it will remain this way. I'll keep going with what I'm doing and report back.

Is there anything I can check permissions wise assuming that was the problem and it's somehow magically fixed itself?

It's hard to say what might have fixed it but give it some time to make sure it's working for more than a day.

The permission settings are standard procedure for setting up a work group though you might want to limit access to only certain folders for security reasons rather than giving permission to access the entire C drive.

Understood, there's plenty of reboots coming in the near future as I install the rest of the drivers, so we'll see where it goes. Assuming it's stable now, for whatever reason, I'll restrict it back to just the User folder.

Regarding Permissions, I think my real question is where are they exactly, and what do I need to be looking at? What might have been preventing me from having access to begin with? I went back and forth through all the Sharing options, the Permissions button, the Security tab, and it all looked like it was set up exactly like every other computer. When it all looks the same (to me), it's impossible to tell what's wrong.
