  1. Why does my share drive keep disconnecting?


    I have a laptop (Windows 10 Pro, WiFi) and a desktop (Windows 10 Home, wired).

    The desktop mounts the C: drive of the laptop as a share, known as Z:
    This share stays around. No problems.

    The laptop mounts the C: drive of the desktop as a share, known as P:
    This share drops every minute or so. Why?

    This was not a problem at my old home (Google Fiber service), but has become a problem in the new location (Armstrong Cable).
    BTW ... on the laptop this is what I run to create the share:
    net use P: \\DESKTOP-IP\c DESKTOP-PASSWORD /user:DESKTOP-HOST\DESKTOP-USER /persistent:yes

    :)

  3. Cannot access shared network drive


    I could scream! so much time wasted on this stupid error, as if time is not precious enough!
    It probably would work fine if I could see the other computer! But I cannot see the other computer!
