    I have a customer with a peer to peer Win 95/98 network. One machine (P III w/128 meg) is not cooperating. It will not display the other machines on Network Neighborhood but I can browse other (already) mapped drives. All machines on the network can access this machine. In DOS I can ping other machines and ping this machine. I have eliminated the possiblity of hardware problems. They had an attack of the QAZ virus which has been cleaned up as far as I can tell. Any ideas would be greatlyappreciated!

      The problem would be with the network settings on the PC. What you can try doing is to check the network settings, and ensure that they are similar to the other PCs on the network.Change the seetings in Network from the control panel and restart thePC to see if it works or not. If this does not work then remove all settings from network and retry the above procedure. If all fails check your network card.

      Good Luck

      Try removing the adapter, reboot, and then add the adapter, it just could be a corrupt driver problem, because the browser is part of the adapter config ie: master browser…

      I had a similar problem recently and what it boiled down to was IPX protocol. I thought I had loaded the IPX protocol for the internal network, but had not. Make sure you have all protocols loaded. If you are using TCP/IP and IPX together make sure everything matches up.

      Good Luck,

      You might also enable Microsoft File / printer sharing.

      click on network neighborhood and check all configurations, make sure the workgroup name is the same check the physical network card, and if all else fails reinstall the network driver, i recently have had a pc here at my job that did the same thingi did these things and it fixed it

      Try to check on primary network logon. If it’s set to windows logon check if password supplied is correct.

      To check if it’s a password problem, go start -> logoff and log again using the correct user and password.

      A machine will react like this if file and print sharing is disabled through registry settings among other things. (For example: Previosly mapped shares continue to be available but you are no longer able to select “sharing from the context menu”)I agree with the answer above that suggests uninstalling and re-installing “file and print sharing for Microsoft networks” in the network properties dialog.

        By the way, the other suggestions regarding other network settings are also important items to check as well. Good luck.

      The first thing I would look at is the installed network Protocols on the problem machine. Netbui for example is essential for network viewing of other machines. I would then check that this machine is sharing resources although this is not essential. If all is as it should be then I would remove the NIC card drivers and reinstall them from the OEM disk (assuming of course that this machine worked fine at a previous date with the same equipment). You say that you are able to ping this machine as well as access it via all others in the network. This being the case the problem is not hardware but software\configuration … Good luck.

      This happens alot with 98 on our nt/98 network. Make sure netbui is installed like it says above, when/if it is make it the default protocol and your problems should be solved.
