Windows 98 computer can't ping network names only ip addresses
Posted on 2004-08-27
I have a windows 98 computer that can't resolve the IP address to computer names. I'm on a windows 2000 domain and have a PDC that has DNS running on it and all the computers use DHCP to get their ip address, dns and wins. All 100 other computers work fine but on this one computer no matter what I try I can't get the DNS to work on it. I have tried setting it up to use dhcp and also tried it with static ip, dns and wins and still no luck. I am able to ping the IP addresses of all the servers on the network but can't ping them by their name. Any ideas on what to try next?
