How do you assign IP addresses?

If you use DHCP, then you can change the node type in there. You want 08H which is the hybrid node type. First is searches WINS, then does a broadcast.

See here:

the entry is labeled NodeType

To make it easier for you this is exactly all you need to do, make sure that Netbios/Netbeui is installed on all computers.

Settings |control panel|administrative tools|DHCP

In the DHCP server create the scope to the IP address of 192.168.0.1 ( or what ever your dc ip address is )

Within that scope create these entries

044 WINS/NBNS server = 192.168.0.1 ( or what ever your dc ip address is )

046 WINS/NBT Node type = 0x8 or H-Node

Then make sure WINS server is installed also
then in WINS server in the same section of administrative tools you can add static IP if certain computers
have problems finding the DNS/DHCP or even WINS server

Also then you can set up a replication server or a BDC server with the WINS LMHOST file on it as well
with in the same snap in.

This will solve numerous RAS,DNS,DHCP errors and also within these 3 servers you can also work around
the active directory.

The Active Directory will now be the user profile and manager of the Domain which has its good and bad
sides.

I have given these instructions before for similar problem
and the link to it is this

I think what newwavepro suggested might be overkill. From what I read, Win 2000 sets the node type to hybrid automatically if you configure it to use a WINS server? Do you have WINS on your network.

It maybe overkill but it always works. Especally if you are using any form of Remote Access you WILL need these settings within the scope or it will not view connections properly.

yes if the node type differ you can ping with ipaddress and hostnames but u cannot ping with the netbiosname so first u mustchange the node type i also get the same problem if u give the type through dhcp u cannot change the type immediately. if u want u must first stop the dhcp service and uninstall the nic and restart and then install the nic and it will the correct node type as hybrid. or u can change the registry in local machine key.i do this practically and i have change the node type and i connect with the domain controller properlly. i also tried all other methods and at last when the node type is changed the client connect wiht the dc immediately. so try this.

Actually that's not true. Different node types communicate differently. The node types are:
1 = b-node (broadcasts)
2 = p-node (point-to- point name queries to a WINS server)
4 = m-node (broadcast then query name server)
8 = h-node (query name server, then broadcast).

Since all except the P node will use broadcast, the only time you would have problems is if the workstations we all P nodes, and your WINS server broke.

i did like what duelas said and the problem solved.(reinstall nic)but i think the peer to peer node is the only problem like jjeff1 said .
