Cannot view network drives from Laptop
I cannot view any network drives from my win 10 Laptop. I've already adjusted the windows sharing settings on all PC's On the main PC where the nextwork drive is located, it can view the Laptop and see the mapped drives in the Laptop, BUT I cannot view/read/write/modify anything on the C drive (asks for admin permissions), but I can view/read/write/modify in the public folder. I have 3 PC's on the same network with no issues sharing network drives, but my Laptop seems to be the issue.
Wireless Network Recognition Issue
I have a four year old Dell laptop. When trying to connect to the church wifi, it doesn't recognize the network, though my two Apple devices will (and they connect with no problem). Are there any known Windows 10 issues with wifi (thinking of the constant update problems), or a setting that I should be checking? It sees other networks in the area, but not the one I want.
Home Network Issues
My home network, Wi-Fi based, lacks stability in that it often fails to present in File Explorer networked PCs I intend to access. When this happens, I have to leave the computer I am using to go to the target PC to perform what's needed. It's really a problem of inconsistency ("now you see me, now you don't"). Each PC is setup on the network by simply entering the password for AT&T gateway/modem, without creating any kind of homegroup or workgroup, etc., etc. Where am I going wrong? Is there a tried and true home network setup method that I can use to avoid this annoyance? Any help this community can provide would be greatly appreciated. By way of background, let me say this: System: Windows 10 Home, 64-bit Connectivity: Wi-Fi Number of Pcs: 6 Thanks. ca le
Facing problem in setting up your Netgear AX 1800 Extender?
To set up Netgear AX 1800 through the Nighthawk app, follow these steps- 1. Download the app from your mobile play store or apple store if you are an Apple User. 2. Open the wifi settings & search for the Netgear_Ext. Connect your device to it. 3. Open the Nighthawk application now. 4. Now, you can move the extender to your new location and make sure that it is not more than halfway from the router with low signals. 5. Power on the extender and check if the connection between the extender and router is good or not. You can look at the router link LED for this. Move extender closer to router until the LED flashes white. 6. Now, reconnect your device to the new Extender. To set up your wifi range extender with WPS Method or Network Installation Assistant, check out this thread. https://mywifiextnet-com.com/netgear-ax-1800-setup/

All Detected Networks Stuck on Connect Automatically
Several days ago I got a new router from Xfinity (Arris TG1782g). My brother noticed immediately on his laptop (running Win 7) that when he clicks the Internet Access icon in the Task Bar, every single detected network in the area has Connect Automatically checked. We live in a densely populated city and there are a LOT of detected networks. I noticed a few moments ago that my PC running Win 10 Pro also has very single Connect Automatically box checked. Most are secured networks but some are not. I can uncheck them all but they revert back to checked immediately. There is no option to 'forget' any of the networks listed and I can't find a setting to uncheck or remove them. I also cannot find a user manual anywhere online for the new router, nor can I find anything in the router's settings that covers my issue. I do not have this issue with my Apple and Android devices. It's only Windows.
