    I solved it.

    In "Properties" for the network connections, I saw that there was
    something strange with the "File and Printer sharing for Microsoft
    Networks". Its checkbox was greyed, making me suspect some part of it
    was disabled. There are no properties for this service though. So I
    decided to reinstall it. After doing so, the checkbox was no longer
    greyed, and the whole network worked fine.
