There are easy ones, like restarting the PC.

Not in this case. Already tried three times with the same failure error...

Just heard back from Panasonic. The space icons on the username/pw fields are, indeed, inactive. Panny suggested that I just put in my two-worded username (this doesn't work!), or change the username on the computer...

Just create another account, by the way is C:\Users\default still there? It may cause such error if you deleted it in the past.

Yes. I have default and default user folders under C:\Users\

Hmm, just remembered something. You don't need to login with an account to set its share and NTFS permissions.

Try this and see if it will work - it worked in my test setup (you can change names to whatever you like):

- recreate the "camerasync" account if you deleted it
- create a new folder "panasonic" inside My Pictures.
- right click panasonic and properties, switch to security tab
- under "group or user names" click edit, add, write "camerasync" without "" and click full control under Allow. Apply. Ok.
- switch to sharing tab, advanced sharing, check "share this folder"
- click permissions, click add, write "camerasync" and Ok,
- give full control under allow, apply, Ok
- ok out

- now configure your camera to connect to the share with:
Username: camerasync
Password: whatever you have specified while creating the account

If you encounter a problem, try creating a different user (doesn't need to be admin with above procedure), no need to login, just follow the above steps

Report back please if any step doesn't work for you

Followed your instructions to a "T," and yet still get the same error message stating the either the PW or username was incorrect. I didn't set up a new user account because when I originally tried to set up "camerasync" as a new user account, the setup was a continuous failure. However, I found out that I already had a "Guest" account and used that one to follow your instructions. I don't remember when this account was set up, but I do know that it had no PW associated with its opening. So, after having everything set as instructed, I tried to link up via wifi, and still got the same error message. The only thing that I can think of is that the Guest account didn't have a PW, so my input to the camera for ussername was Guest and I never entered a PW (as there was none). Maybe the account needed a PW, but i doubt it. What gets me is that when friends or family come over to the house and want to hook up to my wifi, I give them the encrypted code and they hook up...what is the problem with this camera???

Wifi is another business. I assume camera is already connected to Wifi? The user in your PC will be used after you connect camera to Wifi with it's respective password.

But, this is exactly the problem that I am having: I am trying to hook the camera to my wifi so that I can download the camera's pics into the PC via wifi. Sorry if I didn't make this clear.

Sorry for returning back a bit late.

While searching I came across your thread FZ1000: Need help with Wi-Fi hook-up: Panasonic Compact Camera Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

It seems you have successfully connected to the wireless router.

EDIT: Just got a little further in that I have now entered the correct encryption code, selected the correct PC, BUT username and password again were noted to be incorrect (don't know which one or both). Again, I have seen two different definitions of username. One comes from Start>upper right hand corner and the other comes from Start>cmd>C:\users\xxx yyy. I used both, but I think the latter one isn't right as it is two words and when typing it in the camera, there was no "space" character???
You have done correct up to that point, so do it again (Select SSID of wireless, and enter pass-phrase). Make sure password for camerasync is alphanumeric (only numbers and letters, no signs). Also is your PC's workgroup name is workgroup? Computer - Properties shows that name. Now, enter camerasync for user and it's password.
