First delete all network connections from within My Network Places. Then turn off windows firewall and remove/uninstall any other Firewalls. Now using the network wizard create your network connection. After its created do not forget to share any drives folders. Then re install any firewalls and use the firewall wizard to configure and it will auto accept the new network created.
