Hello, I'm having a great deal of trouble getting a laptop with Vista Home Premium to recognize our network (and map a network drive). We have Windows 2000 Server here with many XP Pro laptops, but this is the first Vista. I've tried turning off the firewall, disabling antivirus, everything. I have internet access, but can't seem to map a network drive. It says "The account is not authorized to log in from this station." Can you help me? Thanks, Ed

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Question??
“I have Internet access”

Do you mean by this that you have access to the Internet through your network/router, or if you hook the vista laptop to an Internet connection you have Internet access?

My first thought here is to make sure that within TCP/IP settings of your network card, you have IPv6 disabled.

    Thanks Limbo, but I have finally figured it out. It was an SMB signing issue. I needed to make this change in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServiceslanmanworkstationparameters enablesecuritysignature [REG_DWORD] = 0x0 Cheers, Ed
