+ 0 Votes Try entering the full path to a known host in the network wellington.it February 22, 2013 at 12:10am PST This comment builds on kmthom's comment. You didn't say what version of Windows you are working on and if the the other members of the network are the same version. Try pinging to a host name where you are sure of the exact host name and the shared drive/directory. If successful with the ping test, trying pathing in the exact address to the share from an explorer address bar (\\hostname\DriveOrShare). I have experienced this exact problem in the past and when I put the full path to the share , Windows all of a sudden sees the host AND all of the other hosts on the network.
