Similar issues have been posted to this and other forums in the past, but I will describe my specific situation here as I believe the circumstances are somewhat different from those described in other threads:
I have a USB hard drive connected to my Linksys EA 3500 router and am trying to create a link to it from one specific laptop via WIFI in Windows 10 Build 14965. I also have a second laptop where I had no difficulty (same Win 10 build) creating a share to the USB drive.
When I try to create a share, using either \\192.168.1.1 or \\LinkSys17963, the task aborts with the following error message:
\\LinkSys17693 is not accessible. You might not have permissions to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
A specific logon session does not exist. It may already have been terminated.
Because I have no issues creating shares to the drive from the other laptop or from the 3 other computers on my network, I believe there must be a problem on the laptop in question.
Any suggestions on how I can fix this gratefully accepted.
