    Problems Trying to Map Network Drives


    I have windows 10 on my home laptop which I have brought in to work, connected up to the wireless network and attemping (and failed) to map the networks drives that are attached to our server.

    For some reasons, when I try and browser for folders whilst attemping to map drives, explorer doesnt find anything at all. No computers are visable .

    I have done this before on an older laptop running windows 7 without issue so whats has changed ?

    The version of windows 10 on the laptop is the "home" version however I have installed the various security certificates etc.

    Any help would be gratefully recieved.

    First, I'm going to assume you have permission to do this? Wouldn't be allowed on my network, but just wanted to make sure.

    Second, the network browse rarely works, if ever, when you aren't using a domain account. But that's fine, as the best practice for networking is to UNC to the servers. You should know the server names, so if you can ping them, you should be able to connect drives as \\servername\sharename. You'll likely need to set the credentials as well, and they should connect.
