    If you can post a screen shot of your ipconfig/all I may be able to help with this problem.
    Sorry, The forum kind of died out so I ended up reinstalling Windows 8. It is working now, but I cannot share from Windows 8 now.. If it not one thing its another...

    Windows 8 Release Preview


    I'm a Comp TIA A+ technician with 18 years experience.

    I have had the same problem as described by "bjsmith" above.

    I attended a Trade Show at D&H Distributing yesterday in Hershey PA... spoke to Steve Deming, Partner Technology Advisor Microsoft (Baltimore office). He was going to look into the problem for me. If anyone reading this knows how to contact him, you might tell him that the problem is solved. See below for details.

    It turns out that after replacing my router (an older Linksys E1000) with a new Linksys E4200 and a new Linksys 8-port Switch (which is really a "hub" and not a "switch"... didn't know that until AFTER I bought it... Linksys should really relabel it), and spending 4 days trying everything I could think of, I still had the SAME PROBLEM! ie, from the Win-8 machine I could "see" all of the other network computers, but could not access their shared files. From any of the other 3 network computers (all Win-7 Pro) I could "see" and ACCESS all of the Win-8 machine's shared files!

    Finally SOLVED the problem by simply doing a re-install of Win-8 Release Preview, from within Windows 8 (not a "clean" install from DOS). During the re-install start-up, I choose the option that would retain all of my apps and settings. It's the first choice in a list of 3 choices. I was a little worried that if the option retained all of my "settings", the re-install would simply retain what ever settings were causing the problem. But, apparently that is NOT what happens. It seems that the only "settings" that are retained are program related settings. The network settings were all "reset" to whatever default levels that the re-install process "thought" were appropriate for use, because everything is now working correctly.

    Yes, of course, the network computers that you are trying to connect with all have to be correctly "shared"....

    Hope this helps those of you that are having the same problem.

    Suggest to setup the mapped network drives manually and don't even bother with the network map at all.

    Also suggest to disable IPv6 for in your network adapter's properties. Then also disable the IP Helper and all Homegroup services, if you don't plan on using Homegroup at all.

    Upgrade firmware for router and network drivers for all computers.

    Here's an example of how my adapter is configured. The top entries not seen are enabled:

    Getting rid of IPv6 and turning off services is not the way to proceed here.

    BJsmith, there are some settings you can adjust in Windows 8 Local Security Policy which will allow for access to older servers, this seems to be the only real problem you are having now.

    If your still around let me know and I can post instructions on how to get Windows 8 to connect with older servers.

    It's odd because it works fine when I try to connect to my Windows 8 laptop from my Windows 7 desktop.

    I'm having pretty much the same problem. On my main computer (PC-A) which is running Win 8 Pro, I can see and connect to all the other computers on my network, except 1 which is running Win 8 Preview (PC-B). PC-B however can connect to PC-A's shared drives. PC-A can not ping via name or IP PC-B, always returns as time outs. There are no firewalls, netbios is on as well, I unchecked ipv6 as suggested as well, but nothing.

    I found a workaround with the problem. I rebooted the computer that I was attempting to connect FROM. After that, everything worked.

    I know .. weird .. :/

    I am still here... I did find a work around. If I type in the ip address of the machine I am trying to access it works fine, but clicking on the computer in the network folder I still get the same error. I have upgraded to Windows 8 pro and it is still the same....

    can you try the following:

    First:
    1. Open a command prompt
    2. Type net use z: \\computer name\share name
    3. See if it connects?

    Second:
    1. In Windows 8 Open Control panel
    2. Open User Accounts
    3. Select Manage My Credentials (on the left)
    4. Select Windows Credentials
    5. Select Add a Windows Credential
    6. Complete the details
    7. See if it connects?
    THank you SOOOOO much for this, this was the final solution that fixed my NAS drive issues. I tried so many various attempts of various so called solutions.. This was the one that did it.. I am extremely happy and grateful!

    Hello,

    I am having the same error, BUT the file I am trying to open is stored locally in my \Downloads folder, not anywhere on the network. Any idea why this might be? Btw, I'm in a Windows Server 2012 Domain Environment, and actually anything network related is working just fine.

    Cheers
