I have windows 7 home premium on computer 1 and windows 7 professional on computer 2. Both are wired connections, workgroup is "workgroup", firewalls off on both computers, no antivirus

 

Computer 1 cannot see its own network shares but can see computer 2's network shares

 

Computer 2 can see its own network shares but cannot see computer 1's network shares

 

So, computer 1 is obviously the problem for it can't see itself and no other computers can see it

 

Tried rebuilding network, did not work

 

There is an exclamation point in device manager for a network controller (not network adapter) unable

to locate the driver, it's a dell inspiron one 2330 with windows 7 64

 

Everything is set right in advanced sharing

 

Anyone have a clue why the shares would not show up even for itself

Hello, and Welcome

 

Right click the Network Controller device. Select Properties. Under the Details tab, select Hardware ID's in the dropdown box. Copy and Paste the first line in your next post.

John, Thank you for responding, I apologize that it took so long to respond.

 

I was able to find the driver and everything is operating at this time

 

Thanks,

If this statement is correct, then you need to activate your firewalls and install AV on both as soon as possible. Not just for your safety but for that of anyone you may e-mail or send files to.
