OK. I no u guys are good, so please help.
I cannot set up a network place in a new sony vaio laptop. When i use network setup wizard it asks all the right questions. The laptop is seen by other computers on the network but does not allow access. When i veiw workgroup computers from the laptop it does not even see itself. I can ping other computers from the laptop but i cannot ping the laptop itself. I can ping the default gateway. I have tried changing the ip address but to no avail.
I have tried copying the exact settings of everything on another new vaio that works on the network but this laptop will not recognise any workgroups at all. I do get internet access from it. I am now desperate and running out of time. This is urgent!!!!
