Alright, so I'm running Vista SP2, and recently, the networking hasn't been working right. First off, when the computer boots, it takes a few minutes to even recognize that there is even a cable connected, and then it takes even longer to realize that there's an internet connection on the other end of that cable. So after the computer makes all these revelations, I still can't change any sharing settings. When I try to share files, I get "The program will not run - the parameter is incorrect," and when I try to change sharing settings in the Network and Sharing Center, I still get that message. It's been doing this for quite a while now, and it's getting on my nerves.
Also, from what I've read at other sites, there are suggestions to disable any extra firewalls and such, which doesn't apply to me, since I'm just using Windows Firewall. Rebooting generally fixes it for a while, but the problem tends to creep back.
Anyone have an answer for a more permanent solution?
EDIT: Another thing I've just discovered is that each time this happens, Network Discovery turns itself off.
