I have been trying to set up a raspberry pi so that I can fileshare through samba with a windows PC using an ethernet cable, while still being able to connect to internet using WiFi. Right now I can connect to the pi occasionally through the ethernet cable, but it seems to drop out frequently. When I view network devices I can see the pi, however when I try to connect I am usually greeted with the message "\RASPBERRYPI is not accessible. You may not have permission to use this resource. User name not found."
If anyone has any idea of how I can fix this problem it would be greatly appreciated. I do not have any issues if I try to file share using the same wifi network, but at my location the wifi network is very slow and prone to dropouts which is why it is of critical importance to use ethernet.
