    Error 0x80070035 Network path not found


    Hi, I am having trouble networking my Toshiba Laptop with Windows 8 and three (3) of the five computers on my network. The three that I cannot access are all running Windows 7 64 bit, the others that work fine are Windows Vista 32 bit. I can ping all the computers both by name and ip address. Also I can see all the computers in my network folder, but whenever I click on any of the Windows 7 64bit computers I get an error 0x80070035 The network path was not found. I am using Microsoft Security Essentials for the antivirus. Also using the windows firewall, but no extra firewalls. I have tried to disable the antivirus, and firewall, but did not help. I have tried a number of ideas, but to no avail yet.

    Thanks DJC for the reply. I did look those ideas over and tried them out with out luck I am Afraid.
    I do have the NetBIOS over TCI/IP enabled. By the way this is a 32 bit version of Windows 8. I do have the router manually configured, but the windows 8 it is still giving me the same error code...

    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:

    You must have a password set to allow sharing, by default. If any of these machines are running an account without a password, give those accounts a password then.


    You can test shares by remote mounting entire drives. For example, remote C: share is C$.

    For again, example - to map remote theoretical machine's C drive: //192.168.0.60/C$

    To setup specific shares from the remote machine, go to that machine's folder(s) and set the security permissions for sharing to "Everyone" without the quotes. (You have to type it in.)

    The computer I am trying to connect to is acting as a server, all the other computers on the network can access every other computer just fine. I could connect to it also when I had windows 7 installed on this laptop.... I did have network access for the first day or so and the connection failed and cannot be restored. Thank you all for the ideas! I may need a os reinstall, but I wanted to resolve this without a reinstall if I can. Also all the shared files on this windows 8 laptop can be accessed from all computers on the network, even the acting server. I just cannot reach the acting server with windows 8 for some reason.


    Just an update I did reinstall Windows 8 and all is well....

    What type of account are you using to log into Windows 8, local or a Microsoft account?

    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?

    If you can post a screen shot of your ipconfig/all I may be able to help with this problem.
