Major mapping network problem with only Win 8.1 in one direction only!

jhmac77
First of all I have been mapping access between computer for several years from XP on and know what is required for mapping. Now mapping from 7 to 8 does not work but going from 8 to 7 works the same as for many years before win 8. Win 7 to another win 7 computer always works usually.

Whenever I try to map a windows 7 drive in my laptop to windows 8.1 laptop I get the following error that the spelling is not correct(but this is not true). I have checked the spelling finding no problems and I have opened all folders for sharing and security is set the same way reading and writing as when I network windows 7 drives to other windows 7 drives. I have no problem between win 7 drives. One person suggested making sure the addresses like 777.888.987 were open but that does not seem to apply. I pinged it, turned off password protection temp turned firewall protection off. Still a possible spelling problem? NOT SPELLING! What is it?
