    "The network path was not found."


    I have to computers connect to a network. On one computer, I can access the other, but can't do the same on the other. I used to be able to but now I get the error that the path could not be found. Any suggestions on how to get this to start working? Thanks

    First make sure the other computer is not sleeping or powered down, heh. If that does not fix it, reboot everything on the network. These two things is usually the most common networking issues. I would assume you are using Homegroup and have wired connections? Fianly make sure that all computers can see the internet so you know that the network is up and running and the router is working. Speaking of routers, it is a long shot, but powering it off then on might help.

    Looks like I fixed it. It was something with the firewall program I had (Windows 8 Firewall Control). I installed the same firewall program I have on the pc (ZoneAlarm) and now it works.
