Network Neighborhood in Windows 98

Hello,
Recently my PC (WIN98) crashed while installing Lotus. I reinstalled Windows 98, and found that everything works except Network Neighborhood. So I tried to reinstalled NIC driver and configured TCP/IP connection. All HW seems to be working, but still can not get Network neighorhood to work. Any help would be deeply appreciated.

Thank you

Define "doesn't work"... what is the network neighborhood telling you to indicate it doesnt work?  Whats not working about it?  What do you want to achieve with it thats not happening?

"Net Beui " is already installed.
When I said it "doesn't work", I meant to say that when I restart PC (networked), It doesn't prompt me for "Logon Network Password", so when I click on "Network Neighborhood", it is empty. However, when I "log of" (WIN98) and log back on, the "Logon Network Password" appears, allowing me to connect to Network PCs.

Thanks//

Ah.

Do you have a NT Domain you log onto?

"NO" when I reboot, but "YES" when I log off and log back on.

Hm.

Ok, try this.

Go to the desktop.
Right click on network neighborhood.
Select Properties.
You should have a service "Client for microsoft networks"
Click on that and select properties.
Is everythign selected properly?  "Log onto windows nt domain" and "Normal login (Not quick)" are both selected?  If either is not selected, select it and reboot.  See what it does for you.

Try this... Do a search on your HD for *.PWL and delete all of those.

Are you connecting to the network via a switch?  If so, there is a known problem with some switch configurations and DHCP lease renewal.  I can get you a reference to the article explaining how to fix it if this applies.

Good Luck,

Bert

Normally here on EE you wait until you're sure of the problem before you lock the question with obiviously wrong answers.  He can log on once he logs off, which means that the bindings are correct.  You should have posted this as a comment and not an answer which has now locked the question thus preventing anyone else from seeing it as needing resolution.
