i have 3 win7 pc's, 1 2 and 3
1 is wireless and cannot access 2 or 3 and returns an error "network address invalid"
2 is wired and cannot find 1 with error "address cannot be found" but can access 3
3 is wired and cannot find 1 with same error as 1 but can access 2
1 used to be able to access 2 which holds a network share
2 has been reinstalled for various reasons and has always had the same name, ip, account an password
3 has a fresh install and has never been on the network
my question is, what is stopping 1 from accessing anything on the network, it can see everything but not access anything. all the share settings are correct, they are all on same subnet, and all permissions have been set correctly as well. i've been trying to solve this for a few days and have come up with nothing
reinstall os on 1 is not an option
can anyone help or does anyone have an answer?
thx n adv
