Can't see computers in "My network Places"
Posted on 2003-10-27
Can you please help!!!
I have successfully network three computers together as follows.
Host = running windows XP proffessional
Client A = WinMe
Client B= WinMe
Router = Efficient Networks 5861 DSL
Alcatel = USB Modem - Sharing BT Internet Broadband conn.
I can Ping every nodes from any terminal with no problem.
I can see the share folders from all the computers in the "My Network Places" on each nodes.
I can view Client A & B nodes into my "Workgroup" from either Client A or Client B.
So the problem is I cannot see my host computer in the "Workgroup" on Client A or B, nor on the Host computer itself.
Finally a very strange twist, when I go to Client B and run a search for trhe name of the host computer it finds it, but when I do the same on Client A I cannot find it.
I can connect to the internet with the Host and Client A, but Client B will not connect. Note: all three connected to the internet before and work with no problem until I re-run the network wizard again.
Because of this I can't add the printer from the host to the clients so they can print from it.
Your help will be greatly appreciated with thanks
NOTE: Sorry I have'nt got much Points !!!
