Hhmmm…this is strange. Over the last few weeks, I’ve noticed that randomly, I seem to be losing the ability to connect to other PCs on the network. The biggest problem is that it is random! I thought I’d narrowed it down to a faulty router-modem, but having taken delivery of a new one today, it doesn’t seem to have made any difference. Bugger! I can see the other PCs on the network, but when I double click on their icons, I get ‘Windows cannot access…’
Update 14:30. After a bit of searching around various Forums on the ‘net, I discovered a number that were suggesting the following:
1. Click on the Start button
2. Click on ‘run’
3. Type in ‘\\ipaddress’ then OK
4. Type in ‘\\<>
So, far it seems to have done the trick!
Update 18:05 Looks like I spoke too soon! Some of the network has disappeared although some of the shortcuts to other places on the network still work whilst others do not!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
