  1. Found this great Networking Problem Solver and thought a good defense is a better offense.
    This should help users to do the prelimiary configs and debugging for themselves.

    I would love to lift the content(ie: copy/paste) directly into this board,
    but that's a major ethics and copyright issue, so just click the link and
    be thankful :)

    Site has a large page, especially if you're using Firefox; all the scripting
    unfolds into a long presentation before you get to the real content.

    <ctl>F for 'Please read this first' (please do so)
    Then search for 'See the results'

    dependencies are:
    Network Connections + Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
    Windows Management Instrumentation+ (RPC)​
    Start all three and then restart the the firewall
