    Why do we have to go through all this hassle for Windows networking


    Hi folks

    I really get tired of the number of times have to "Reset" routers, reboot loads of devices or clear out all connected devices on Windows Networking just to get a HOME network to run straight out of the box -- all this stuff like SMB level, net lan logon etc etc -- what a DOGS DINNER -- why can't Windows networking (at least on HOME COMPUTERS) work straight out of the box.

    Who needs on HOME networking to worry about 99% of the security stuff that corporate LAN's have to do -- also why on earth should typical home users have to worry about setting up DHCP Routing, IPTABLES/ EBTABLES, other routing, DHCP lease times etc etc --what a load of GARBAGE.

    Almost any Linux Distro I've used way back for at least 30 years Networking just works straight out of the box.

    Each New Windows 10 release or update makes it a complete lottery as to whether the update will hose the whole thing up ( actually a 66% or 2/3rds likelyhood of networking breaking judging by current statistics. !!).

    As far as Windows is concerned W7 seemed to have the least problems with connectivity -- C'mon Ms for HOME networks you don't need CIA / Military strength security to get the thing running -- most HOME users just want to be able to share files and stream stuff to locally connected (VIA HOME Lan's for Lan connected TV's, amazon fire sticks etc) hardware --hardly "Mission Critical" security needed for this.

    Cheers

    Basic Network guide

    I'll be adding a small page on doing this in windows vista soon, since XP is the same with a step or two less, i assume people will figure it out.

    Why do we have to go through all this hassle for Windows networking

    Did our Epson printer get hacked?

    Another question, is this on a home network or a work network? The steps @eidairaman1 listed are always a good first step. If this is on a work network you manage, I'd be much more concerned than the home one. It is possible someone is screwing with you, but malware could also be the culprit.
