    On my mac, to connect to any of my windows computers, I used to go to the "Go" menu and then select "Connect to Server". From there I would type in smb://172.19.2.6 and then "connect" and away I would go. I'd get the good old list of network shares to mount.

    Now when I select the smb://172.19.2.6, "connect", I get an error:

    Nothing network wise has changed. I rebooted my WAP and reset my net connection and everything else. And networking works fine on the PC side. Any ideas?

    --Please help! *confused and frustrated in Ohio*

    Because it was just an example and I forgot that the image showed the IP.. lol

    I fixed it now.

    Appears to be specifically targeted at windows 7 as I have an XP machine that I can at least get a login prompt for. Man this sucks...
