the system was disconnected from the network and operated stand alone elsewhere then returned,
upon return and connected as per before, the system won't see the network and the network won't see it.
When browsing network neighbourhood the workgroup it belongs to can be seen and the computer itself, but no others. When clicking on the workgroup icon an error is returned stating that:
workgroup not accessible
the list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available.
When pinging from this machine to any others, the reason stated for not connecting is that 'destination host unreachable'
