Not all clients visible

By pupstwo ·
I have a problem with a Windows2000 client running in a peer-to-peer environment.
I can only see a few clients in My Network Places.
All computers are on same subnet.
This client used to be able to see all other clients, but suddenly it can't.
There has been no software loaded and nothing, knowingly, changed.
Help?

Couple of things....

1. Can you ping the other computers by IP?
ping x.x.x.xip (press enter)

2. Can you ping them by computer name?
ping computername (press enter)

(*just in case you don't know how to open a command prompt to use ping, goto start/run/type cmd press enter. And dos prompt will open up)

If 1 and 2 reply 4 times with a good response then.....

Right click net neighborhood/properties

Click network Identification on the left side of the screen or from tools.

Look at the part that says workgroup... Make sure it is the exact same that they other machines are listed in.

Also the other machines need to be running in order for you to see them.. Also you will need to double click on net neighborhood and drill down until you see them. They will not just appear.

You can also open up a browser window and type in \\computername (press enter)

Any shares located on that system should appear. If it prompts you for a U/P then you will need to enter it.

Good Luck

The other thing you need to check is for hibernation modes...

1) check the BIOS (enter the computer setup) and disable power save mode.

2) the newer network adapters also seem to have a power save mode. go to your control panel --> Network --> choose your network adapter on the computers that seem to disappear from Network Places and make sure that the nics are not going to sleep.
