Windows 7: Can't delete add or recreate network

23 Apr 2013   #1

Windows 7 Professional
Can't delete add or recreate network

I have moved my system drive to a new box. For whatever reason Windows 7 x64 decided to mangle the network so I can't access, read from, or write to any previously shared folders. I am hardwired to a wireless adapter and can see all the old shared folders but drilling down to them takes minutes instead of seconds. Deleting the homegroup did nothing. I have tried every method I have found to delete and recreate a network. Basically no matter what I try in network and sharing etc., right clicking on icons, checking and unchecking boxes I don't ever see an option to leave or delete a network, which in all the relevant posts I can find is the suggested solution. I know some others can because I see posts that were answered and the problem resolved. So how can I completely kill and recreate the network? I do NOT want to use homegroup since it previously mucked up things so they are completely unusable.

Not so clear here.....Were you trying to access a wireless computer from a wired computer?
"I am hardwired to a wireless adapter"

Changing the Speed & Duplex of your network adapter from Device Manager might help.
