Mapping Drives

0 pts.

Networking
I maintain a network of 7 systems running XP. One of these systems can not map a drive. There is no network neighborhood shown. I can ping other systems and I can use the NET VIEW and see other systems but can not get MAP or NET USE to connect at all. When system was first put up, it worked OK and still has a remote printer connected to another PC which it uses daily. Systems are all Dell Dimensions. I have even removed the adapter and reinstalled it to no avail. Almost seems as if there is something in registry keeping me out of network.

    Hello, If it's not to big a hassle, move the workstation to another drop and test. It is possible the drop or cable may be bad. Since you seem to have some connectivity but not all, a faulty wire may be the culprit. Good Luck!

    Sounds to me like some Client or Service is missing or damaged in your station's network stack. Take a look at the connection properties on one of the working machines to see what's listed, then check the trouble station and see if anything's missing. I'd guess something like "Client for Microsoft Networks" or "File and Printer Sharing" may not be there. If you don't see anything missing, something could still be damaged. The suggestion in reply #1 should work: remove the entire network stack, remove the NIC, do a clean reinstall, and verify all the settings against a working station.

    All those answers are good but you may also want to make sure a user hasn't messed up any service pack 2 firewall settings by mistake.
