Network directory not showing

Last Modified: 2013-11-16
Alright, all computers are working fine but one.  When I go to look at entire network it shows only 2 computers and theres 30 on the network.  Also, cannot get on the internet, but it is pinging the servers.  It runs syspro, a server based app, with no problem.

Check that computer in same IP range and subnet on network and check any firewall enabled if winxp sp2 is the operating system and also uninstall or configure the trusted IP configuration for  the norton internet security / zone alarm with firewall or mcaffee installed on that machine and important DNS address settings on that computer.

Hope it heps

I tried ipconfig/release, renew, and flushdns to no avail.  File and print sharing had been on, I don't know how to check that really.  The network card and router look to be working.


Problem solved.  The subnet was bringing up the wrong value for some reason.  Had to manually put in an IP address.
