I am having a similar issue. I have an XP machine that stores all of my documents in a shared folder. Until today, Windows 7 had access to that shared folder, but now the only way I can connect is using the IP Address, then access the shared folder.
Funny thing is, nothing has changed. There were no updates. It just stopped working. Vista and XP both can access the folder with no problems, but Windows 7 cant access it. Its in the same workgroup, I have checked the firewall, usernames & passwords are correct and I have all other network connectivity. Its like its sending the wrong password or something.
I did a TCP/IP stack reset, but that didnt work.
This almost reminds me of when your system clock is incorrect and you cannot access network shares, but the clocks are in sync.
I have access to a network print server and that still seems to be working.
Not sure what this is, but I'll find the answer and post it.

I found my problem...or at least a solution.
I had identical usernames/passwords on my windows 7 and xp machines, but still could not access the xp shares from Win 7. As a test, I added "everyone" to the shared permissions on the xp machine folder and added "everyone" to the security settings on the xp folder and gave each Full Control. It worked, so then I backtracked and removed the "everyone" user from both. After that, I was again unable to open the shared folder again from the Win 7 machine.
I was certain that my password was the same on both machines, because when I accessed the shares via ip address, I was able to gain access. So the only answer was that accessing the share via unc path was sending different credentials than accessing it via ip address. Diagnosis...password corruption on Windows 7.
I simply changed my password on the Win 7 machine to something else. Then changed it back to my original password. Logged off/on and voila... fully accessible.
Very strange, but it makes sense when you look at the fact I was always able to access via IP address.
Hope this helps you.
