    Have two computers, one is a tablet running Vista on a domain network, the other is my desktop running W7 on a home private network. I was FINALLY able to connect to my Desktop shares but only by typing the IP address of the Desktop shared folder from the Vista tablet. Both computers can see each other in the Network window but clicking on the other computer always brings up the "Network path not found" (on either computer). I can't connect to the domain bound Vista tablet from my W7 desktop but that isn't a high priority deal. I have mapped the shared folder from my Desktop by IP address and all works for now but I'd like it to work by just clicking on it in the Network window.

    Thanks for any tips or suggestions.
