So you have a computer that you share files to your home workgroup, you know that you configured everything correctly and simple, shouldn’t be hard right? but somehow one of your computer couldn’t access, and you have tried everything, diagnose and so on. What’s the problem?
Well, I found out through windows 7, and I’m sure other windows version as well. If you have a computer on a network that have the same computer name such as a-PC and a-PC, the same computer name, most likely the computer will not be able to read file shared from another computer with the same computer name. So go change the computer name, you shouldn’t have the same computer name in a network. It’s like having the same local IP but that will not happen since your router or hub will notify you and will either change automatically or you will not be able to access the network internet properly. However in windows system, the computer name doesn’t really check, if there’s another computer on the network with the same computer name, it doesn’t know until it tried to access one another and problem start to occur.
