  1. Go to the notification area in desktop, click the network icon, choose your network and tehen click connect after that it will ask for a password if this what you mean
  2. Yes I am having the same problem:

    I have 2 windows 8 PC's networked... I am running them via a KVM switch.

    I am currently on PC3....I click on the "Network" icon, it displays PC2 & PC3 (examples).
    I click on PC2 and it opens a dialog box, asking for a Network name & password.

    I also does this in the reversed way....
    I am on PC2....I click on the "Network" icon, it displays PC2 & PC3 (examples).
    I click on PC3 and it opens a dialog box, asking for a Network name & password.


    I am not sure what "name and password" I need to enter on each PC. I have tried everything I know,
    including the Router Name & Password, and nothing works.

    Is there some other place where these details are, that I don't know about???
  3. OK, I can open network files from PC3, on PC2 now... but still can't open PC2 files on PC3...
    Also, for some reason Windows Search, and Online Help & Support is not listed in the Services on PC3. Maybe that has something to do with it. I cannot 'search' for anything on this PC, and I cannot get any online help.
  4. I too tried many ideas for hours to no avail: what did work is entering my email account and password for win 8, which is required for its security login; it was instantly visible in win 7. mjm
