Unable to connect to LAN computers via the UNC or through My network places

I am the domain admin but I am unable to ping and unable to map to any local machine.

When I ping the computer name or the IP address it times out.

the workstations are working fine though

All are using DHCP, DNS.

DHCP and DNS seem to be working fine.

make sure you are trying to access the computer name first then the share name

also make sure that file and printer sharing is turned on under windows firewall (Windows XP)

AP? ... Access Point?    you shouldn't use vague acronyms.

Are your computers on a domain or part of a workgroup?
