    Can see network, but cannot connect


    I have discovery and sharing on, and I can see the network, but cannot connect. I have 'forgotten' the network and re-connected, but that doesn't resolve the issue. I reach the internet through this network but cannot connect to our server, and other computers connect to it but not this win10 computer.

    If smb1 is turned off in Windows Features, it removes the Computer Browser service, which is needed for SMB2 & 3. I posted the info on how to disable smb1 from the command line, turn Computer Browser to Automatic and all computers will be seen in Network, instead of having to always remember the IP to get to them.

    Did you go into Services to see if Computer browser is there and running. You can use lan Scanner from Downloads | Scotties Tech.Info to see in the Command Window that the computers are all being seen by your machine.

    The Firewall can cause problems, same as if you disabled SMBv1 an did not go through the steps to disable from the command Window with the sc.exe command.

    Can see win 10 server in windows explorer but cannot access


    In my client's windows explorer network, I can see my server SHOWDOG. When I click on it, I get "windows cannot access \\SHOWDOG Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network. To try to identify and resolve network problems, click Diagnose."
    Clicking on Diagnose results in "Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (SHOWDOG) is not responding".
    SMB1 and Computer Browser are running on server.
    Both client and server are in the same workgroup.
    Server is Win 10 pro version 1703, running static IP (block of static IP addresses is reserved in router)
    Client is Win 7 pro version 6.1 build 7601 Service pack 1 running dynamic IP
    Has been running successfully for a long time, but lately no access is allowed.
    I can use remote desktop from client using the server's static IP address, but never could access using server name (not a problem, just confirmation that server can be accessed).
    I have a local account on the server, with read and write permissions for two folders.
