    I had the same problem and I was looking here because I forgot how to take care of this. And then I found it and it's very simple. Just go to your HomeGroup settings - Change advanced sharing settings - Turn off password protected sharing.
    Yes, the Guest account is used somehow for sharing folders. I need password protected sharing off (Guest account on) to be able to connect my camera via WiFi.

    After many months, I'm still having no luck connecting my laptop to the other two (desktop) PC shares.

    I've also looked into the enabling the "Guest" account, but apparently there is no longer a Guest account in Windows 10 - is that correct?

    Could anyone please tell me what I need to enter for "Network Credentials" to access these shared folders on I7PC from I7HASWELL?
    I have password-protected sharing OFF but I am still asked for account name and password.
    I7PC has only one account, I enter the account name and password, but they are not accepted.
    (I also tried entering the one and only account details on I7HASWELL, but that did not work either. I didn't think this was the correct thing to do anyway!)

    This issue arose after upgrading I7HASWELL from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.
    I7PC is still running Windows 8.1.
    All shares worked without issue when both PCs were running Windows 8.1.
    Hi! try to use the Email that you have setup on the user account and the password! let me know if that work.

    One thing I have noticed is that the 'problem' machine (the laptop, which connects via wireless to the router) is on a different private network to the other two desktop machines (which are both connected to the router via Ethernet).

    The two desktops are on the default network (that was automatically created by Windows during the initial install, I assume?). This network is called simply "Network" in network settings).

    The laptop's network is shown as "AirNet" in network settings, which is also the SSID of the wireless network on the router.

    Could this be a contributing factor to the problem of the network credentials issue?

    I think this is an appropriate place to dump some of my notes and observations on the topic. Hopefully some will find this helpful.

    In summary,
    • If Password Protected Sharing is on, the builtin Guest account should be off.
    • If Password Protected Sharing is off, the builtin Guest account should be on.
    • If Password Protected Sharing is off and the builtin Guest account is off, Password Protected Sharing will implicitly be on.
    • If Password Protected Sharing is on and the builtin Guest account is on, Windows will tend to give the error message “Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer.”
    • Due to a bug in the way these settings interact, there may be a fifth case. If you have not toggled Password Protected Sharing or the builtin Guest account before, it may be a good idea to do so, even if it is in the desired state. A an account of this bug is mentioned here.
    • When you enter network credentials, make sure you are entering the credentials for the account on the network machine you are connecting to.
    • The account you are attempting to authenticate with must have a password; it can’t be blank. However, there is a group policy to change this restriction.
    • If you have saved credentials, you can clear them through Credential Manager (control.exe /name Microsoft.CredentialManager).
    • If you want to clear the currently cached credentials, restart the Workstation (LanmanWorkstation) service: Restart-Service Workstation -Force. Restarting this service is an administrative action.
    • In Windows 10, toggling the builtin Guest account can be tricky to do through the GUI. It can instead be toggled through the net command, but this requires you know the name of the Guest account. If your machine’s locale is not English, or you have changed the name of the builtin Guest account, use the following commands to toggle the account.
      rem Enable Guest
      wmic useraccount where "LocalAccount=True And (SID Like 'S-1-5-%-501')" set Disabled=False
      rem Disable Guest
      wmic useraccount where "LocalAccount=True And (SID Like 'S-1-5-%-501')" set Disabled=True
      rem Toggle Guest
      wmic useraccount where "LocalAccount=True And (SID Like 'S-1-5-%-501')" get Disabled | find "TRUE" && wmic useraccount where "LocalAccount=True And (SID Like 'S-1-5-%-501')" set Disabled=False || wmic useraccount where "LocalAccount=True And (SID Like 'S-1-5-%-501')" set Disabled=True

    Easy solution!

    I've struggled with this issue for a long time - and gave up!

    With a fresh mind, the solution is simple:

    Use the Microsoft email address (as a user name) and the password for it, of the computer you are trying to connect to. Problem fixed!

    Finally the missing piece !

    After taking a long time trying everything imaginable, including your wise advice, I finally found the piece that I needed and therefore the SOLUTION. Naturally the guest user has to be deactivated and .....You must run "gpedit.msc" and in windows configuration / security settings / local directives / security options / network access: Sharing and security model for local accounts you must change "Guest only - local users authenticate as Guest" by "Classic - local users authenticate themselves".
    And that is !
