It may be a problem with samba but I did change some parts of it and it did nothing.

Here is my etc/samba/smb.conf if anyone needs it.

Hi Michael, thanks for the report.

I think this is probably a configuration problem. Could you please direct this issue to our Support Tracker?

When you do, please inform in your support request if your wifi connection isn't working for other things, too, or if it's affecting just file sharing. Providing the output of this command should also help a lot:

ifconfig -a

Best Regards,
