    "the specific network provider name is invalid". It think it's a DNS issue.

    on win7 and vista in command prompt:
    Code:
    ping  cimadomal
    ping  josh-laptop
    if it gives 4 sent, 4 received that's okay.
    both machines ping each other ok
    Sure they ping each other by name (not by ip address) without problems?

    No idea yet what is wrong. Did it work before? How long do you have this problem? Did you install something related?

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\NetworkProvider\HwOrder
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\NetworkProvider\Order

    Those registry keys have name ProviderOrder in the pane to the right. It its value: RDPNP,LanmanWorkstation,webclient ??
