I have internet connectivity but no access to local area network.  I can't map drives or install network printers.  This is a Windows XP computer.  Other Windows XP computers on Lan work ok.  Any ideas?

Check your IP address and other machines IP address.

They should be in same subnet.

How are you accessing internet.

What does your network like. Do you have a DSL router and a switch to share your internet.

Do you have DHCP server setup on router or you use static IPs.

Hi rbjohnson2551,

Verify that your NetBIOS is enabled.

Cheers!

Very possible it is a DNS issue. Can you map a drive using the IP address instead of the computer name. i.e. net use f: \\192.168.1.102\sharename.

All computers on the LAN get ip addresses automatically from the server and they are all on the same subnet.
I access the the internet via Comcast through a modem/firewall and a switch.
I have verified that NetBios is enabled.
All computers on the LAN are members of the same work group.
I tried to map a drive using the ip address instead of the computer name and I got the error message of incorrect function.

Thanks for all the tips

The network interface card is a Marvell Yukon 88E8053 PCI-E and in the device manager under properties, advanced, Speed & Duplex was set to "Auto-Sensing".  I changed it to 100mbps Full Duplex and now it works.

To everyone who commented, thanks for your help.
