Let's start with this, confirm that all services set to Automatic are starting properly. There will be some that say Automatic but don't start properly (such as Performance Logs and Alerts), but if you post a list of them I can weed those out for you.

In particular, Computer Browser, Net Logon, Server, and Workstation need to be running.

Hello,

Check the DNS service on server & client. Sometimes DNS has not resolved & it cause problem like map drive not accessible or internet browsing issue.

Check the firewall setting, if you configured or you can changed any setting with firewall.

Automatic startup services are already started except the Performance logs and alerts (logged on as NETWORK SERVICE ) AND net logon service(logged on as LOCAL SYSTEM ) are unable to start ,

DNS service in the host is already started , but do you think it's a dns issue , we call the hosts by IPs !!

waits you .

are you in a domain environment?

the Net Logon service needs to be running in a domain environment to make connections

The Netlogon service still needs to be running.

also try changing the workgroup and change it back (rebooting in between)

workgroups communicate on network broadcasts, make sure the your server network settings are is in the same.

are you able to access the internet?  can the server ping the other computers?  can the other computers ping the server?

also in a workgroup - all users and passwords have to be the same on each computer

there are quite a few tips on this page:
