Don't get frustrated.....
Just try the following things:
Create an user account with name: mede8er
After that, put password on it: mede8er
Be sure that your PC is configured in the workgroup: WORKGROUP (is it?)
Or is it configured in a Domain?
Now at this user to a folder on your PC to share it.
Now goto network shortcut menu on your mede8er and try to logon with this login name and password.
I was frustrated 2 hours ago, now I'm downrigh angry and on the verge!
Nevertheless, results as follows:-
- I created a user account: mede8er with password: mede8er
- The PC is in the workgroup: WORKGROUP (it always has been and still is)
- I've added the user to a folder I want to share
- I've gone to my network shortcut. After a while a box is displayed with User Name and Password fields. The User Name is prefilled with 'mede8er'. I enter 'mede8er' as the password (even though it was already defined on the shortcut!) and select 'OK & save to my shortcuts'. Mede8er logo appears and spins for 15 seconds before I get 'LOGON FAIL' message.
Tried selecting the shortcut again, this time dialog window appears with password prefilled with asterisks. I click OK, but after 15 seconds I get the LOGON FAIL message again.
So, still doesn't work
I still have high hopes for the Mede8er, but just wish simple things like this would just work. As a consumer I shouldn't have to be messing around like this.
