Millennium Edition - WINS (again) !!!

By rgilbert ·
I am setting up a PC (Windows ME pre-installed) for a user to access our NT LAN from home, using an internal modem to dial-up to our LAN and authenticating via SecurID. Normally (using Win9 we enable WINS as well as DNS when setting up (this works) and are able to see the LAN, map workstations, etc. and have had no problems in the past. There is no NIC card in the PC.

In Windows Millennium Edition is does not appear possible to configure WINS in the ?My Network Places?. I add a secondTCP/IP, which then shows the WINS, but is gone after the reboot. In DUN both DNS & WINS can be configured, which I have done, but this makes no difference either. I am able to connect to the LAN, ping any machine but cannot map a drive nor see thenetwork. It definitely appears to be a WINS issue, but I cannot figure how to configure the TCP/IP for WINS.

Does anyone have a (proven) procedure that will work? I do appreciate all suggestions, but am certain all seemingly ?logical? steps have been tried. This seems to be specifically a Windows ME thing. Thanks.

Thank you for your input soulrider, but from what I can find the query posted last week was mine for which I unable to get an answer. The Microsoft Public newsgroups are full of questions about ME and network connection problems. I have checked theMSFT Windows ME page for help (nothing) and there is ZIP in ME help. I have had several people here (all with networking experience)tryin to sort this out and we are stumped. Obviously ME is different than Win98 regarding networking ... it would be nice if MSFT posted some info about it.
