Windows 7: cant ping, browse or open

11 May 2011   #11

Win7 & Win8 64bit

Failure to ping is more a Firewall issue...and Firewall is off, no Security software?

What's the Node Type on the other computer? If it's Peer to Peer, that's an issue.
The one that you posted has 'Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Hybrid'

Make sure that you have an Identical UserName and Password on both computer.

You may also try enabling the Guest Account for now and see if it helps.

Also, can the Win7 laptop ping the XP computer? If so, you can then copy files from the XP box to the laptop using the Laptop...instead of the other way around.
