I'm having an issue trying to connect to a domain on a new computer. I can ping other machines including the server in command window, but I cannot join a domain because the "member of domain option" is disabled. Additionally, the network id button is also disabled. The description of dialog says "you must install networking before you can change this computer's domain membership."
My system is Winxp pro SP2 and the integrated network card is a VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter (on MSI K8MM-V motherboard). I've upgraded all drivers for this board and even removed and reloaded all protocols and services from the network card.
Also very strange is that I can access the internet while on that machine. I just cannot join a domain and can only change a workgroup name using one of the wizard tools.
Can someone pls help? Thanks.
