Does Unmanaged Switch(GS308v3) Control File Access Between Connected Computers
I have two Windows 10 computers connected to this switch, which in turn is cabled to a Verizon Gigabit Ethernet router/modem. They work fine except that File Manager on either machine cannot see folders and files on the other machine. One machine can't see the other at all in File Manager; the other one can see it but I get the message that I don't have authorization to access files and folders on that machine.
Am I correct in understanding that unmanaged switches make connections between attached devices without user intervention? Is there any sort of setting that I need to adjust to permit file sharing? I realize this is a long-shot, but have to eliminate the switch and its firmware.
