Firstly, How can Windows do what Dir Sync Pro do?
Secondly, both IP addresses are different but I do not think that should matter. Anyways, since I have a static IP address at the ethernet network card, I tried by setting a static ip address for the wireless card outside of the DHCP servers range of IP addresses but it did not work either becuase folders kept getting unshared. I could go online though with static IP address so the connection seemed to be ok.
Thirdly, enabling netbios over tcp/ip. I already checked that choice. It noticed that it was set by default. So I changed to the choice which forces enabling Netbios and it did not make any difference. (now I am just wondering whether I rebooted or not after changing this setting, I believe so, but I could try again just in case).
The thing is that it did not work like for 6 or 8 hours. But after few hours when the laptop was off, I booted it again and it got working what actually surprised me because I had not changed anything. Luckyly, this time that I booted the computer I found all the shares created that had been dissapearing as I was creating them. So by that time I thought the problem was somehow solved because I could even see the sares created in a previous windows session.
But again, I switchedo off the computer for a few more hours and when I booted it again I found that it did not work anymore since the shared folders got unshared in a matter of seconds. Having seen that behaviour, I thought that some virus might be involved.
And now I am trying with avast. Let's see the report when it finishes because it is quite slow.
