Windows 7: SMB share disconnects after ~10 sec

SMB share disconnects after ~10 sec

I'm trying to access a share on a Windows 7 machine from a media player. My authentication goes through and I connect fine for 10-30 seconds, but then the connection just times out. I can reconnect from the media player, but it always disconnects again.

I've already changed the "Network security: LAN Manager authentication level" to "Send LM & NTLM responses". I wasn't able to connect at all before that.
