I have a home network, all computers can see each other, but when i click on icon for the other computers and try to open the shared folder, it says the computer name is mis-spelled. can not share printer due to this same probelm. all computers have find other computer setting set, as well as share printer, and etc.. please tell what i am missing. the actual error code is 0x80070035 network path not found.

we are getting on the net from 1 router connected to a satellite modem. Like i said computer can see each other. and all the windows help posting is selected as per windows help. but still no avail. :thumbsup:

thanks
Paula

hi,,,, check these services are set to auto on each pc,,,,,, type in to start menu search box,,,, services ,,, hit enter,,,, then look for these services in there,,,
Workstation, DHCP Client, DNS Client, Server, TCP/IP Netbios helper, Computer Browser.
then also check the firewalls on each pc to allow networking,,,, quickest way to test if its the F/W blocking is to turn it off,, try on 2 pc's,,,, dont forget to turn them back on though
good luck.

Perhaps another solution is to attempt to connect to them using their IP's in the browser address bar. If it works , you could always set your router to Static IP's and set each computer IP, making it a little easier to navigate.

What firewall is on each PC?

What is the make and model of your satellite modem and your router?

Not sure where the issue is but we'll figure it all out =)

I will try that. I do know with XP we would already be sharing everything... What gets me is 1st it says I've mis-spelled the computer name, when i clicked on the icon of the computer that my computer found.. then it's says in the details, the error code and no network path mapped, when i can pull up a map of the network and it shows all computers in house connected to router, then the internet... and every computer on network has same error and each has Vista..

I'll let ya know if it works..

Paula :thumbsup:

I finally got it.. the firewall, kept resetting the network discovery, even with the dang thing off.. plus i got the ip address, went in the firewall and said that network ip was trusted, etc. across the board thing, ya know.. it kept resetting the network from private to public and turning off the network discovery, and then saying that turning it on after the OS reset the settings, that the network discovery was not an option..

but now

even with firewalls up all computers can see, and play in the public folders, and share printers.. which was the objective..

thanks.
Paula :thumbsup:
