A Simple Problem of LAN & INTERNET

By Siraj ·
Could anyone help me.
I have a simple LAN setup in my office with Win 2K Server & XP Terminals with BUS topology. The problem occurs suddenly. All XP terminals can not access Server and other terminals as well even when Drives are shared. Even Server machine can not browse other machine. But all machine can exchange Emails through our Server through MDaemon. All XP Terminals can access internet. XP Terminals are connected through a Hub. Can Anyone help me. Thanks.

Is that Windows 2000 server a domain controller?

What service packs are on the systems?

What hot fixes?

Have you ran scans for viri and worms?

What is the distance for the entire bus segment and is this Ethernet? Token Ring? Passive ArcNet? Active ArcNet?

could have been better had you posted in the tech questions and answers section .
Anyway , from your detailed hint , definetly it is a network problem. change the hub to a switch and go to a star topology . use cat5e at least , with proper termination and patch cords . use ping to test connectivity before and after the cure.
