  • Network Security: Lan Manager authentication level -> set this to
    "Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 Session if negotiated"
  • Network Security: Minimum session security for NTLM SSP Based (there are 2 of these)
    Make sure both boxes are unchecked in each one
This worked for me
Had this already done since every time I rebooted my PC's I needed to login to access the share. However this was w/ Snow Leopard. Even with these changes it refuses to accept the password w/ Lion.

I'll also add this is only possible w/ Professional copies of Windows. Local Policy Editor isn't included w/ Home Premium.
