    If your other clients can access your server, then you probably have a problem with your 7 install, and since 7 isn't RTM yet, you might have found a bug with the OS (plus WHS doesn't officially "support" 7 yet).  You could try filing a bug report on Connect.  In addition, there is now a beta version of Power Pack 3 you can download from Connect.  (FYI, once Power Pack 3 is released, WHS will then officially support 7.)

    What happens when you try to open the shares?  Do you get an error message?  If so, exactly what does it say?

    I've never heard of that error message.  If you open up a command prompt and type \\server (replace "server" with the name of your server), what happens?  Can you ping your server by name or by IP address?
