Problem viewing shared drives with ADSL dial-in to my office
Posted on 2003-03-24
I really have one major problem but (as expected) another maybe related, maybe not. I recently installed an ADSL connection to my office replacing my old 56K modem. Problem is I can no longer browse network drives ( or map them). I Have WIN 98 SE version, and have added Microsoft's VPN networking protocols and this is the only thing that is different. I can Ping our office server, and run Outlook mail ,and connect to our business system but having checked everything ( with the help of my IT department) I now keep getting an error message "Your network is not complete" when trying to go in and check network neighbourhood properties. This seems to be caused by the fact that "Client for Microsoft Netowrks" is not shown as installed. When I Add it, it appears but then as soon as I re-boot, it's gone again and back comes the same error message.
I do have Norton Firewall 2003 installed now but apart from this I can think of no reason for not being able to connect and share the drives. Can anyone help this poor dinosaur??
