Hi folks
On clean install on build 22454 I can't get file explorer to display contents of networked and shared folders ( i.e files within them) == computers together with shared folders are displayed but when clicking -- nothing !! -- local disks are OK plus external ones.
SMB set correctly etc etc.

On an UPDATE from a previous build this defect doesn't occur.

These are running on physical hardware - not VM's.

Cheers
jimbo

I've had massive network problems after clean installing 22454 and triple checking I had the latest drivers for all three of my NICs - one of them kept failing out no matter what I did.

I finally rebooted my switch and everything is back to normal and super fast. So, worth a shot.

Hi there
It didn't work for me -- only an update from any previous version from W11 worked. I noticed also that on a clean install of W11 quite a few drivers were missing such as some Intel hardware things, sd card reader etc. - To install those I did "update drivers" from computer and pointed computer at a previous W11's installation system32->Driverstore. Windows update itself didn't find the required drivers.
I'll postpone any clean W11 install until the next release or the oct 5th one assuming it appears on time.
If networking fails then for me the whole OS is useless.
