WIN95 pc's can't browse after removing N

By 90proof ·
Question... I have a flat switched network with 2 domains (staff & student), DNS, primary and secondary WINS servers (pointing to themselves)... In the student classrooms I removed NetBEUI from a few of the pc's as I'm trying to take it off of the network.


The problem I'm now having is that after removing NetBEUI, those pc's can only browse the student side and can't see any of the staff side (which I still want for the techs to upload/download across the network)... any ideas as to why they can't see the entire network? They all have the WINS properties set up correctly.

Several question
1)Are the two domain are joined through HUB,bridge or connect through router?
2)What other protocal in your two domain beside NetBEUI? TCP/IP or what?
3)Have you ping one of computer (from teachers to students) Any problem?

The possible cause mostly due to Microsoft prefer NetBIOS so that the network connection are connected through NetBIOS mostly.

Suggestion
Assume your have the router
Try to set a default gateway of all computer as the address of routher so that the browser can accross the network

Let me know if any improvement

Run WINIPCFG and make sure all the information which is supposed to be there is there for each card. This should help you narrow the problem down.

This may be a silly question, but do you have either one WINS server on each network, or at least one WINS server on one side and a WINS proxy on the other? It has been my experience that this is the most common problem. A secondary WINS server is only contacted if your initial WINS server is unavailable, and thus doesn't count.

I hope this helps!

I have also heard of some windows 95 browser issues. If any of your systems use them, they can force an election (even though it doesn't stand a chance)this can sometimes bog down the network and give innacurate browsing details. This can be adjusted through the registry of the '95 system.

First, add a static WINS entry of "domain" for each NT domain on each WINS server. It sounds like Name Resolution. NetBEUI broadcasts for NetBIOS names, IP on the other hand, nees WINS to help figure this out. Are you using DHCP??? If so set the Node Type to 0x8, which will query WINS first then broadcast, and make sure each WINS server is listed in the client's Primary and Secondary WINS server fields. This will help register the clients. Also, make sure you can ping a machine in each domain to verify connectivity. BTW, what OS are you using??? I take it your bridging as NetBEUI isn't routable. One big single collision domain!!!!
