windows 2000 Network

By jefjosh ·
I'm having problem browsing other computers on my network. I keep getting the error:"The service name is invalid". My copmuter is the DHCP server through which other computers browse the internet. Though they can browse the net yet they cannot ping or see my computer on the network. All the computers 're on the same workgroup, and I can ping them from my system but can't see them on the network. pls your response's are needed urgently.

1. Have you got a fire-wall which may be preventing you to register on the network and vice versa.

2. On the client machine do a ipconfig /all to make sure it is recieving ip from your PC

3. Do ipconfig on your PC to make sure it has the its ip address from which clients are reciving IPs from
:- there may be another device which is dishing out IPs which superseeds your machine.
