If you get an error reinstalling client for microsoft networks you will need to uninstall your nic driver containing the files, reboot, reinstall, reboot.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Thanks so much for the fix...Saved my bacon there!! Had been Googling stuff for hours to no avail.
Thing is that if you look at the client entry, it looks like it is already set, so you need to open it up and do it fully as described.

Another symptom of the problem is that my normally shared folders were no longer shared....And if I tried to share them, it would say that they can't be shared.!..

THE SOLUTION: I had to re-install the protocol "Client for Microsoft Networks". This is under Network and Sharing Center, click on "Local Area Connection" beside where it says "Connections:" > Properties > Install > Client > Client for Microsoft Networks.

Somehow it managed to get deleted, I'm thinking perhaps it has to do with the router change making a new network connection that didn't include it automatically. Apparently without it, network connections are a one-way street.

Anyway, hopefully this information winds up useful to someone at some point. Take care.
