Lenovo t60 problems with network

By valdoltra ·
Hey guys!
I have a serious problem with my CEO's T60. I can't connect to any computer in my network via My Network Places also all mapped drievs dissappear. All computers use WinXP SP2. I can ping them succesfully but only if I ping IP; if I ping computer name I get "cannot find hostname blahblah". Any ideas?

It sounds as if the DNS is not working. Check the setting in the Properties of Local Area Connection - TCP/IP - Properties - Use the following DNS server addresses.

Check the setting from another computer that works. After you fixed it, go to the command prompt and type in nslookup. At the > prompt, type in a domain name and press Enter. It should now find the IP address. Type in Ctrl-C to finish.

I thought it could be DNS but it was actualy node type that was improper (don't ask why). Deleted registry key and node type changed from peer-peer to unknown... it works fine now. The answer is here

Thanks anyway
