DOMAIN is not accessible?

We have a Server 2003 and our domain name is ZOSCO. Normally I am able to access network files through Microsoft Windows Network and then I would click the "ZOSCO" domain. Now what is happening is that I get the error message

"ZOSCO  is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.  The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available".  

I have domain rights through my workstation account , so I should be having permissions?

This is where things get weird. When I click run and type: "\\fileserver" or "\\"  I immediately can access all the shared folders on the server. However I find it really strange since I am able to log onto the domain without a problem. When I go to cmd.exe and I try to ping I get

I do not know what happened to my Domain  because everything was working properly.

3. Check the DHCP scope options to see if you are using the correct WINS node type (should be h-node)

About WINS and NETBIOS, you should have WINS, and you should set Netbios.

How do you know if it's a browser service problem? If you don't have errors related with that, configure WINS and Netbios first.
It could be a browser problem, but I think I would like to start with Internet Explorer Enhanced Security:

If not, let's troubleshoot the browser.

First check whether your DNS is properly registered or not... Give NSLOOKUP and check whether it points to your DNS server.

If not try to ping <domain name>.com... this should reply with ur DNS server IP. if not look into host record for your domain name in DNS directory.
