Can't browse Network Neighborhood

By tsweany ·
I have Win98SE on a Dell 1GigHZ pc. When I try to browse Network Neighborhood I get nothing. I have 7 computers, 4 printers that I can ping the address and get a 10ms response. I can access this pc from any of the other pc's with no problem. This PChad been on the network for at least 1 year. Any help is greatly appreciated.

If you do not have a server in your environment, you will need to install the MS NetBEUI protocol on this computer. The NetBEUI protocol is broadcast-based and allows you to see other computers in Network Neighborhood if there are active shares on them.

If you already have the MS NetBEUI protocol installed on this computer, then go to control panel and remove it. save and reboot as prompted. and then re-install it.

NetBEUI is installed. If I remove the TCP protocol, everything shows up on the network and seems fine. (Definately hurts my internet) As soon as I reinstall the TCP, the Entire Network stos working.

im thinking here that you have all these machines on your lan connected as a workgroup or group`s, even being client/server scenario(much the same regarding this)

NetBEUI is fine along the lines of a local LAN but if your using any of theese machines ( each having its own dialup connection)for internet access and using tcp/ip then make sure NetBEUI is disabled for your dialup protocol`s used (tcp/ip ) only.

What to remember is that NetBEUI is not routeable so if you require internet access throug your LAN whether it be in a 1 or more workgroup scenario or even client server based then i suggest you uninstall NetBEUI from all your machines and install tcp/ip on all and use any of these machines to deal with ICS.

i am in a very similar situation and find that this has worked fine for me for a couple of yrs.

Even if your computer is part of a domain, be sure that the workgroup is common to the other units that you are trying to see in the Network Neighborhood. Also be sure that your file and print sharing is enabled.
