Cannot Access LAN properties in windows 2000 advance server

Hello,  
   Why is it that i cannot access LAN properties on my windows 2000 advance server even though i'm logged in as administrator?
I don't think I have administrative rights at all.   I created a another user with domain admin rights but still was unable to get access to my LAN properties/
Any URGENT help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Please describe the situation more clearly, what is happening, when you call those properties?
Verify your rights: Open device manager - windows will complain, if you are not an admin.

I login with administrator account into windows 2000 advance server.  I use to be able to access LAN properties and make changes.  I'm not sure when this happen but I had added a second server with no AD as a member  of the first server mentioned above.  
I also added 2 dns servers to the Forward list in DSN management.
   Not sure what could have caused this

You do not have sufficient privileges for accessing connection properties. Contact administrator

I already did that...  I disabled "Prohibit access to properties of a LAN connection"   then restarted the pc but it still didn't give me access to LAn Properties.

Ok, there is the same thing available in regedit. Apply the following regfile:
--------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Network Connections]

"NC_LanProperties"=dword:00000001
