DNS/DHCP Windows ME

By ticoLoco ·
We have dhcp @ our branches, windows me on laptops. None of them can't resolve names given by the dns server although all the settings show under ipconfig (dos prompt)

I can ping ip #'s but not using computer names.

Is this a ME thing? is ME compatible with NT 4.0 DHCP server?

If you can ping IPs but not names, then it is a DNS problem.

Is the DNS Server setting correct in ipconfig? Can you ping those names directly from the DNS server?

If the machines you are trying to ping to are using DHCP, then the DNS server will not know about them. You should set up a Wins server and set your clients or your server to use Wins to resolve unknown computer names.
