Windows 10: Win10 Tablet Networking Problem

    Win10 Tablet Networking Problem

    Totally new to Win10 (and still prefer Win7).

    Recently purchased an Acer Win10 Tablet and wanted to connect to my existing network of two Win7 Desktops and two Win Vista Laptops.

    I just CANNOT get the Tablet to corporate! Sometimes it shows up on the network "map" and sometimes it doesn't. Then sometimes when it does, I get the error saying that "this computer cannot be assigned to the network", or something similar. Sometimes when I click on the Tablet I can see its files, but most of the time I/we get the error that we don't have the ability to connect to it.

    I just accessed the network on this computer (Win7 Desktop) and was able to view the files, even though it was showing the above message. As a matter of fact, I don't even know how to access the "map" on the tablet.

    Whatever else you might need to help, please let me know.

    Thanks a lot.

    Thanks a lot. The link sure is a great one.

    A couple or so things I might mention that could be messing me up:
    1. There is only ONE Link Layer to check on my tablet
    2. I have no idea about LLD
    3. My computer (Dads) connects to VZs JetPack via a USB networking drive, rather than with my build in LAN card (I changed it because I was loosing connections to the internet a lot and my wife's computer wasn't). I noticed when I clicked to the network and then properties, it was the USB LAN that was shown, and no option for whatever else there might be. I suspect that is a problem, yes? Didn't see any way to change it. I could disable it, but then I'd have to go back and go through the whole thing with my installed LAN card.

    To be perfectly honest, having LAN on my Tablet is very minor. I just make an issue of it because I like things to WORK as they should :).

    Thanks again, and if you think something I have said here is part of the problem (other that the operator ) let me know.
