Windows 7: Same Procedure before Network will work..ArGH!

Same Procedure before Network will work..ArGH!

Every-time I want to get my Network to connect on my Windows7-32bit, I have to go into Explorer click on Network Icon (where below it lists all the computers within your network) then a Yellow bar at the top of explorer pops up saying that file sharing is turned off, so I click it so that file sharing is turned on. I then get asked to make the network that I am connect to a private network then the network works. When I turn filing sharing on, same procedure I have to go though, I've gone though this for a few months and I hope that I can solve it whereas when the PC reboot the network just connects and works.

Have you attempted to manually set file sharing to on and save the setting permanently?

You should be able to go into Control Panel > Network & Sharing Center. If you're attempting to share via Win7 then you can create a homegroup, otherwise you need to create a Workgroup. Either way you can also set the default settings for Home/Work networks via the Advanced Sharing Settings.

Of course all of this needs to be done by an administrative account.

Changing some of the advanced settings, solved the problem :) I just hope it doesn't come back :)
