What to do,2000 can't map network drive?

By redmandb ·
Have Windows 2000 Professional installed on a laptop. Connected to our network. Can gain access to the Internet. When viewing the network only shows one other computer on the network besides itself. Will not map the network shared drives or connect to the network printers that are attached to 2 other PC's.

i suspect you are only connect using workgroup. Your network printers and shared drives could be using domain method of connection. Try connecting to the domain.

Make sure you have client for microsoft networks in the local area connections properties on the 2000 computer. It is best if you are in the same workgroup.
Try to ping the other computer's ip if using tcpip or pint their name if using netbuei.
Do a search for the other computers.
Remember the neighborhood network is not an current display of computer resourses on the lan. It can take as long as 20 minutes for the network to update itself. But ping and search is immediate.
And finally to map the resourses, you will need the user name and password of the share or permission.
