    Default Can't connect to the network drive: Windows 7

    I just upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 HP and now can no longer connect to the network drive. That drive is on a machine running Windows 2000. I've tried changing the settings to Home Network and playing with all the settings under networking options and advanced options. I can connect to the internet without difficulty. Thanks for any help,.

    Can you see the drive?

    Or can't the drive and can't access it.

    I assume you can see the computer's IP adress but not the network $Share.

    I can see the server computer that the network drive is on. The error I receive is incorrect password/user name.

    Do you have a local username on the server computer? Or was the share access through an "Everyone" account?

    Edit:

    The upgrade didn't change the network all that much. So I'm guessing it's something server side.

    Everyone has a unique username and password.

    Yeah I'm not sure where the road block is, but I can access the drive from any of the other computers in the office running XP and Vista. It's just the 2 running 7 that aren't linking up.

    Hummm, windows 2000 huh?

    Try this.

    type "secpol.msc" into the run dialog

    Look under Local policy/Security options

    I think it's called LAN manager Authentication level. Set it to send LM responses.

    I'm surprised the Vista machine works.

    Edit:

    Sorry, do this from the 7 Machine.

    Windows cannot find 'secpol.msc'. Hey thanks for your help by the way.

    Oh hummm, I should of asked what version of Windows you are running. Secpol.msc is part of the Admin tools with Professional/Ultimate.

    You should google LAN Manager Authentication level. That't the setting I'm thinking of.
