Joining Domain

By it ·
Okay this one has got me stumped. The client in question is XP SP1, and was previously joined to domain.com. There were a few issues with network connectivity on the client. So I removed it from the domain (which is W2k domain). Found about 18 viruses all of which were deleted or quarantined. I tried to join it back to the domain again and it propted for username and password. After which it said that "the network cannot be found".

I can ping the dc by IP address as well as name. nslookup on domain.com on client returns the dc's IP address. Netbios is running, and pinging by netbios names works as well. But still "the network cannot be found". I've tried everything I can think of, I even enabled WINS. That didn't work either. I have no idea.....it's driving me nuts.

I've tried DHCP and static IP address, still the same result. Other clients are working okay. And i've also reset the computer account.

Any Ideas?
