Windows 2000 PC can't see PTP network

By bullwinkel1 ·
All of a sudden, my notebook PC can't see the small (3 computer) peer to peer network to which it's attached. The error message when I click on the workgroup is "workgroupname is not accessible. The network name cannot be found." This computer had been working fine for months, but....
Notes: I am using Netbeui for the LAN. I can ping other sites using TCP/IP. Other PC's on the LAN can see the Notebook.

Thanks for any help.

Windows 2000 PC can't see PTP network

The first thing I would ask is, have you checked the computer name, and the workgroup name, to see if they are correct?

Have you tried taking out the networking components, and tehn reinstalling them?
