    Greetings, Encountering problem of networking of my work PCs. While working, some of PC disconnect and then I have to disable then enable network adapter, sometimes work sometime does not, reboot doesn't help. Tried everything but still lots of errors.

    Here's what I have done
    All set to home network
    Firewalls down
    NETBIOS over TCP/Ipv4 on
    NTLM checked to"if negotiated"
    Disabled extra Microsoft adapters in hidden devices, device manager.
    Homegroup settings done to full share.
    Acces and full control of drives to everyone.
    Created new homegroup twice
    edited registry and group policies.

    Literally everything I found on internet.

    Error 0x80070035 appear
    While Ping in CMD, shows, request timed out or host unreachable, could not find host.
    Connection not restored.

    Nothing helped


    Please Please help with this. Would really be great of you.

    THANK YOU for spending time on this.

    It sounds like a bad switch/router? I assume when some of the PCs are disconnecting it shows the red x in the networking icon?

    What hardware do you have? Are you using Static IPs?

    No static IP, DHCP server of router is being used.

    Router is ZTE GPON optic fibre.

    On startup, "couldn't reconnect network drives" appears and there is red cross on mapped network drives.


    Please help with this. Thank you.

    So the issue is with mapped drives not reconnecting?

    What are the mapping to?

    Issue is with both, mapped drives are not connected, PCs are also not connected.

    There are software which run as client on one pc connected to server on other.

    For eg. There are 4 systems. On startup, they show the drive message and do not show other pc in network area, but other are on. I have checked in CMD one pc able to get reply from other but same does not happen on other, ot both do not show other is offline. This started happening week ago, don't know why, I have done everything I found.

    Thank you.
