Missing Network Neighborhood

By thecomputerguy74 ·
I am trying to connect someone's laptop to their peer to peer network. I have installed NETBEUI on their laptop, and their NIC seems to be installed correctly and working fine, but Network Neighborhood is not installed, and I can't seem to share any folders or drives. Every time I attempt to do so, I get a message, "Cannot find Access Control List." I need to get his Nethood installed, and share his files properly. The existing network works fine. The question: What could cause this problem, and how do I correct it?

Those services are already installed. That's part of what is making this difficult.

From where did you install the Netbeui if there is no Network Neighborhood? It could be that some components for network is missing. Try adding the required component from Control Panel's Add/Remove program.

It was installed from Control Panel>>Network. As far as I can see, all components from within Add/Remove programs are installed.

At this point I would start from scratch. From Device Manager in the System Control Panel I would uninstall the NIC. From the Network Control Panel I would delete all components and reboot the computer and reinstall the NIC drivers and the Network clients and protocols needed. Make sure that you install the same protocols as on the other machines.

You might want to check these registry settings and see if you can force the icon to come back
Settings:
Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersionPolicies\Explorer]
Value Name: NoNetHood
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)

If not i would go with the previous recomendation to remove the network components and reload them.

you havent specified which o/s you are using if it is win98/95 then just re run the setup program with out making new partitions or doing any thing to data which makes that if some files got corrupt of lost by which you are getting the problem willbe re installed and there wont be any problem for you

if this also wont work then i say it is the problem with the NIC itself.
