Network setup:
2 Windows 2000 Server GC Domain controllers both run dns and one runs wins.
1 NT BDC Server (cant upgrade due to the software it runs)
200 2000/XP/NT pc's

All of a sudden  a few days ago browsing though network neighborhood has stoped working.

When our domain is clicked on through network neighborhood only the computer you are using appears.

When the find computer is used all can be found.
Can ping computers by name, and get to there shares.
The Net use commands in our login scripts work fine.

Why the sudden loss of broswing?

Thanks

this sometimes happens when the WINS database gets corrupted.  Try restarting the DC that runs WINS.
