Why Network Discovery Does Not Work?
Network discovery is when the system sees other devices and connects with it and sharing files become easy. This is done with the three statuses of the devices: On, Off and Custom. The issues start out with enabling and disabling the network discovery. There are times when the network does not get enabled at all. Another problem is when the network itself is not working. This is again a common problem so the solution is also easy.
Tips to Solve
Enabling and disabling the network does not work because the firewall blocks the network discovery. It can be enabled by opening the advance sharing (on the 'Start' button) and going to 'Control panel'. Then go to the search box and click 'Network and sharing center' option. After that open the change advanced sharing settings. There will be an option to expand the current network profile that needs to be clicked. There will be the option to turn on network discovery and save the changes. At times there can be a question to promote the administrator password and confirmation. The user will have to only give (or if necessary change the password) along with the confirmation. It is possible to solve this by creating a new network connection itself. This can be done by going to the network discovery and adding a new network. Adding the new network will need a specific password; adding it can ensure that the system works properly and abuse or cyber crimes will also not take place.
The problem is something that can, at times, take time to solve. It is important to understand that Windows 7 has the following features: a life mail, live messenger, live writer and also a photo gallery that is connected to social networking sites such as Facebook, making the process of loading and sharing much more easy.
