Networking issues Windows 7

Postby Mark312 » Fri Jul 07, 2017 1:23 pm


I wonder if anyone could help with this, please?

I have 6 pc's across my network, all running Windows 7, some Home Premium and some Professional. All have sp1.

The issue is certain pc's cannot access others, as the "Enter password" prompt prevents access.

Attached below is a list of the pc's and which can access which - hopefully this could help you understand why I am confused by all this, despite a fair bit of Googling....

I have not set a network password up on any of the pcs - is there a way to find this, and if so, do I look for it on the pc trying to access another or on the target pc?

Would it be easier to set up a Home Group, or persevere trying to resolve the issues?

Thanks in advance.

Edit - I should have mentioned all the pcs are wired via internal network cabling directly to a router connected to incoming broadband. I can ping the pc's ok, and I've tried disabling the Firewalls but that didn't help.

How this question is related to the Apache OpenOffice or the LibreOffice software?

This the wrong forum for your question. You should post in a Windows 7 forum.

Sorry to have angered you both.

I have done a search and found a suitable forum.

Clearly I wrongly assumed the General Discussion was for issues not necessarily directly related to Open Office, so I was just reaching out really.

I don't think you angered anyone. While there's nothing wrong with posting your question here, the chances of getting a useful answer are much lower here than they would be on a Windows 7 forum dedicated to networking.
