No access outside of workgroup.

By swomack ·
I have a Windows 2000 Pro pc on a peer-to-peer workgroup. Yesterday it could see other computers on the network and access the internet. Today, it can only see others on the network. I can ping other internal ip addresses and the Linksys DSL router but cannot ping any external ip address. Not the DNS ip address provided by our DSL provider, nothing. Other computers can get outside just fine. Nothing that we know of has changed on this pc. I have uninstalled the network adapter, the networking components, set a static ip address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS server. Originally, it was obtaining its ip address, gateway, and subnet mask information from the router. I disabled LMHost lookup because I have had W2K Pro computers that couldn't get on the network when the Enable LMHost lookup box was checked in the TCP/IP properties. Aside from reinstalling the OS, I don't know what else to do.

First, are you enabling NETBIOS over TCP/IP in WINS tab. If you haven't, can cause browsing problems...but if you see your workgroup PC's, then I am guessing you are fine. My guess is that it is a definite DNS problem...or a problem with the IP that your provider gave to you. Do you have an internal DNS server? What DNS server are the other PC's using? All other PC's can access the internet?

What does ipconfig /all show? I'd go back to the beginning and start fresh. Your Linksys router should also be a dhcp server so your pc should be getting its ip configuration from there. Is dhcp enabled and is autoconfiguration enabled? Is the ip address and subnet mask appropriate for your network? Is the gateway pointing to your router? Are the dns entries comparable to the other pc's on your network?
