    An unknown number of macOS Ventura users are reporting that previously working network connections between Apple devices, or Apple and Windows ones, are now not working well — or at all.
    It’s not clear how widespread the problem is in terms of numbers of users, but those affected range from Enterprise-scale networks, to individuals just connecting an iPhone to their MacBook Pro. In every case it’s a SMB connection, but reports are too varied for a more specific issue to be identified…

    … reverting to macOS Monterey fixes the issue. So that is one possible solution, but far from a straightforward or quick one…

    ..the workaround that is currently seeing the best results is when a user first switches off file sharing, then restarts the Mac, then turns file sharing back on…

    The first report in Apple’s support forums appears to have been in early November 2022, but the thread continues to today. That means the issue seemingly introduced with macOS 13, has not been fixed in macOS 13.1 or possibly even 13.2…

      OS Ventura “the gift that keeps on giving” hope this isnt the last of the MacOS for Intel Macs, not a nice way to end the era of Intel, for now, on Mac’s.

      Well still happy with Big Sur and Monterey here, and well messing around with Win 11 on another partition, I suppose I have to make some concessions to the future 😉
