comment Problem with network shares
I have just found that ONLY the shares that I cannot access are on domains that are different from the one I'm joined to.

It is something more complicated. I have completely disabled Windows firewall and tryied it again. Same result: i can ping DAVES-PC but then for \\DAVES-PC i get the message: "Windows cannot access \\DAVES-PC".

I am in the same workgroup, no external firewalls. The network type is work network. Network and printer discovery is on: I can explore networks and the printer are automatically discorevered and installed correctly. However I cannot print nor access to the networks.

comment Problem with network shares
Already done as soon you suggested it was a NETBIOS problem. Netbios wan disabled and I turned it on as you describe here. As soon as I did it I managed to ping DAVES-PC. So now I have its ip address but then I don't see its network shares and the same happen for another network share that is in my office. So now my problem is that I cannot see network shares even if I am able to ping the corresponding computers. Thanks for all your support. Sadly I cannot vote up your answers yet.

No luck: same as before. I can ping DAVES-PC but then still getting the message "Windows cannot access \\DAVES-PC". Of course the share is accessible by other laptops. I have a Vmware and VirtualBox installed. The add some virtual ethernet cards: could this be the root of the problem?
