Windows 7: Issues connecting to Win7 computer across network with Kindle Fire...

Windows 7 64 bit
Issues connecting to Win7 computer across network with Kindle Fire...

I am running Win7 Pro 64 bit on my desktop computer which is hardwired to my network. I have a Kindle Fire and whenever I try to browse across the network and access the Win7, I can see it but I cannot open it. I always get a bad path or general login failure message on the Fire. I can browse to and access the Win7 from any other computer on the network so the problem seems to be with the Kindle-Win7 interface. The Kindle has no trouble whatsoever browsing to and accessing a computer running XP Pro 32bit that is wirelessly connected to the network. I've tried several different file management apps on the Kindle and I have to admit I'm stumped. I'm beginning to wonder if it's some sort of bug in 7, the Kindle OS, or both. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

Windows 7 64 bit

Wow nothing in two days! That's not like the sevenforums I know.

Anyway it appears to be something with Win 7. I got it working just fine with a system running Win 10 Pro 64 bit.

Kindle Fire
I'm thinking of getting this device. At the moment, all wireless connections are off on my router. While I live in a safe neighborhood, I'd still prefer to keep things as hardened as possible. Essentially, I'm a total boob about wireless. Can you offer pointers or sites that can get me up to...
