Windows 7: Network Mapping (I Think)

Network Mapping (I Think)

I'm not sure what it's called, but I wish I could get it to work again. When you go to "Open Network and Sharing", you'll see a little thing in the upper right with the words "See Full Map". When I press on that and wait like 30 secs it tells me that "An error happened during the mapping process". I have looked high and low on how to get this corrected and it seems like nothing is working.

On the stuff I do find out about it, I follow those instructions and still nothing. Does anyone have any clue?

Thanks

I am assuming that your network is operational, correct? You can connect to other computers, shared printer, etc.?

Did you try removing the connection from your list and adding it again?

When you open Network and Sharing, on the left is a link "Manage xxx Networks" (xxx could be Wireless, etc). Click on it, it should list your current connection. Right click, then "Remove network". Then, connect to that network again and see if Mapping works.

Something is causing this, unfortunately, it's very hard to find out what. I don't know your network topology, but if we asume it's a standard home network, I would start by just plugging in the computer to the router and then the router to the modem. Nothing else. If that doesn't work - it could be a program (anti-virus, firewall, etc) or it could be a driver. Best is to try and remember when this stopped working and see what you have installed since, try to figure out which program/driver/update may be causing this issue. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Is there a way in Windows 7 to have network mapping (network neighbourhood or network favorites) shown the same way as it used to be in XP ? That is to say similarly as the attached screen shot where there are both domains and workgroups.
