Default Someone knows - can't browse network

I have a desktop hard wired thru a wireless router to a DSL modem.

I have two laptops connected wirelessly.

the laptops can talk to each other. neither laptop can talk to the
desktop. the desktop can't talk to either laptop.

the laptops are single user. the desktop has multiple users.

I set them all up from scratch. all system have the same workgroup -
though at home it works fine with different workgroup names or the
same.

no firewall on the desktop.

desktop is WinXP SP1
laptop 1 is WinXP SP2
laptop 2 is Win98SE.

all computers can access the internet.

one laptop is in the same configuration at home - except thru a cable
modem - and works fine
Desktop at home is WinXP SP2 with a firewall.

I think I have tried everything.

what did I miss??????????

thanks

The term "can't talk to" is kinda vague. Can't ping? Can't see in Windows
Explorer? Can't open shares?

Please provide ipconfig information for each computer.
Start - Run - "cmd". Type "ipconfig /all c:\ipconfig.txt" into the command
window - Open c:\ipconfig.txt in Notepad, copy and paste into your next post.
Identify operating system (by name and version) (XP Home? Pro?) with each
ipconfig listing.

Between the desktop and one laptop (both ways), test shares visibility (use
actual name / address of each computer as appropriate):
Start - Run then:
1) \\ThisComputerByName
2) \\ThisComputerByIPAddress
3) \\OtherComputerByName
4) \\OtherComputerByIPAddress
Report visibility of shares / error displayed in each test (8 tests total).

Cheers,
Chuck

Default Someone knows - can't browse network

Chuck
thanks for the reply.

to tell the truth, i can't think straight any more. this issue is
frustrating the crap out of me.

I can't browse the network - It won't even show me MY laptop in the
network places, but It does show the workgroup name after a
looooonnnngg pause. I can see everything at home. I have the same
workgroup name at the office as at home. When I had a different one at
the office, it showed me that name. when the workgroup name on the
laptop was the office workgroup, it still connected and worked just
fine at home on the different home workgroup name.

I can't ping the office desktop IP, I can't ping the laptop IPs from
the office desktop. With another wireless laptop on the network, I can
browse it, ping it, etc. and vice versa. I don't remember if it is a
timeout error or network not found.

I can log onto the router and I can browse the internet and ping
anything associated with that EXCEPT the desktop. The network related
services are the same on laptop and desktop.

ipconfig yields the IP address assigned by the router and the proper
gateway address on both computers. I don't remember what else the
office DT showed, but I will capture that info tomorrow.
I also have a hardwire port on the laptop which is called out - it is
not connected.

The IP address is different at the office (192.168.5.11 and 12 and 254
gateway). the internet connection at the office is Bellsouth

The only difference I can see is the home router is behind a cable
modem - the office router is behind a DSL modem. Of course they are
different brand and type routers (Uniden WR2004 802.11b at office).

But since the interrnet works for all computers, that should not be
the issue.

The office router worked just fine when I had it at home before I
installed the 802.11g router. I did have to configure it for PPPOE at
the office in order to connect to the DSL router.

If that gives you a clue, let me know. I will post the office config
tomorrow. I don't think any of the tests you called for will function
since I can't even ping the DT.

DHCP should be functioning on the router since it connects the
wireless laptops. - UNLESS the wireless laptops are connecting ad hoc.
Interesting thought. BUT even if it were not it should ping the
address, right???

thanks

The only difference between home and office is that there is no DNS
information at the office because the wireless router is behind a DSL
4 port router. The DNS SERVER address is listed.

Default Someone knows - can't browse network

All TCP-IP and network settings are the same on my LT and the DT-I
think.
Workgroup name is the same on all computers
All computers can access the inet.

office DT can "see" all connected computers in windows explorer by
name of shared resource. It will not connect to any indicating that

...not accessible. You might not have permission.....
The network path was not found.


When my LT is connected and I click on my workgroup name in My Network
Places it says
List of serviers not ... available.
It wont even show me my computer under my network workgroup.
This works fine at home with no changes.

I can "see" other laptops (XP home and 98SE) in My Network places and
connect to them and vice-versa.


When I try to access by computer name or IP address it displays the
MSN search page and tells me it can't find it. (either IE or windows
explorer)


It doesn't matter if my LT is connected hard or wireless - same
results.

Please do the shares visibility tests - all 8 of them - and let me know the
exact error messages. This helps me decide what to check next.

IRT "DHCP should be functioning on the router since it connects the
wireless laptops. - UNLESS the wireless laptops are connecting ad hoc.", if the
laptops were adhoc, they wouldn't have a network connection to the router, and
they wouldn't have internet. Do they have internet?

From what you've said so far, I think you have a combination of two problems.
Please don't get discouraged - your problems are solvable. But please read
carefully what I say below.

First, "..not accessible. You might not have permission....." sounds like a
permissions (authentication / authorisation) problem.

More about file sharing, between all different versions of Windows:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=87c0a6db-aef8-4bef-925e-7ac9be791028&DisplayLang=en

"List of serviers not ... available." sounds like a browser problem (No, I'm not
talking about Internet Explorer).

The Microsoft Browstat program will show us what browsers you have in your
domain / workgroup, at any time.
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=188305

You can download Browstat from:
http://www.dynawell.com/reskit/microsoft/win2000/browstat.zip
http://rescomp.stanford.edu/staff/manual/rcc/tools/browstat.zip

Browstat is very small (40K), needs no install, and runs from the command
prompt. Just drop it onto a couple workstations, and run it.

Compounding these problems is the fact that you seem to be using one, or both,
laptops in two different environments.

And I've suggested several diagnostic procedures, but you keep summarising
everything subjectively, instead of objectively, about your office environment.

Please verify for me: Is file sharing in your home environment OK? Is the
problem in your office environment?

Next, please identify which items you move between your home and office. And
test, carefully, in both locations.

Between the desktop and one laptop (both ways), at your office, test shares
visibility (use actual name / address of each computer as appropriate):
Start - Run then:
1) \\ThisComputerByName
2) \\ThisComputerByIPAddress
3) \\OtherComputerByName
4) \\OtherComputerByIPAddress
Report visibility of shares / exact error displayed in each test (8 tests
total).

Please provide browstat information for each computer in your office, by running
browstat from each.
Start - Run - "cmd". Type "browstat status c:\browstat.txt" into the command
window - Open c:\browstat.txt in Notepad, copy and paste into your next post.

After you do all of this, let's talk about file sharing permissioning.

Please identify each computer in your home, and in your office. An IPConfig
listing for each would be really helpful here. With each IPConfig listing, name
and version of operating system. Please distinguish between XP Home and XP Pro
- file sharing can work differently for the two versions.

On any XP Pro computer, check to see if Simple File Sharing (Control Panel -
Folder Options - View - Advanced settings) is enabled or disabled. With XP Pro,
you need to have SFS properly set on each computer. Depending upon whether you
have all XP Home, all XP Pro, or some of each, SFS may be advised.

With XP Pro, if SFS is disabled, check the Local Security Policy (Control Panel
- Administrative Tools). Under Local Policies - Security Options, look at
"Network access: Sharing and security model", and ensure it's set to "Classic -
local users authenticate as themselves".

With XP Pro, if you set the Local Security Policy to "Guest only", make sure
that the Guest account is enabled, thru Local User Manager (Start - Run -
"lusrmgr.msc"), and has an identical, non-blank, password on all computers. If
"Classic", setup and use a common non-Guest account, with identical, non-blank,
password on all computers.

For XP Home, OR for XP Pro with Simple File Sharing enabled, make sure that the
Guest account is enabled (for XP Pro, thru Local User Manager (Start - Run -
"lusrmgr.msc")), on each computer.

Cheers,
Chuck

I guess I only did half of the tests.

I didn't do the "thiscomputer" test.

I did the "othercomputer" - cannot browse the DT with any command.
same error - network path not found.

I cannot see anything on the office DT from any LT - tried three.

I can see the laptop shares and the laptop name on the DT but I cannot
look at anything else - network path not found

I can browse any LT from any other LT

Only my LT has multiple environments. the others are not networked at

And I've suggested several diagnostic procedures, but you keep summarising

I can't be objective because I can't get any response other than an
error message that it can't find the network path regardless of how I
try to access it - IP or name path.

Please verify for me: Is file sharing in your home environment OK? Is the
problem in your office environment?

Everything works fine in the home environment.
the problem is the office computer.

Next, please identify which items you move between your home and office. And
test, carefully, in both locations.

My LT - all tests work fine at home - IP or name query
No tests work at the office - network path not found
But the computer names do appear on the DT WExplorer


Between the desktop and one laptop (both ways), at your office, test shares
visibility (use actual name / address of each computer as appropriate):
Start - Run then:
1) \\ThisComputerByName
2) \\ThisComputerByIPAddress
3) \\OtherComputerByName
4) \\OtherComputerByIPAddress

total).

I did all the OTHERCOMPUTER tests but only 1/2 the THISCOMPUTER tests
on my LT
the browsers returned the MSN search screen because the path couldn't
be found on the OTHERCOMPUTER test

Please provide browstat information for each computer in your office, by running
browstat from each.
Start - Run - "cmd". Type "browstat status c:\browstat.txt" into the command

After you do all of this, let's talk about file sharing permissioning.

Please identify each computer in your home, and in your office. An IPConfig
listing for each would be really helpful here. With each IPConfig listing, name
and version of operating system. Please distinguish between XP Home and XP Pro
- file sharing can work differently for the two versions.

IPCONFIG listed in other post

Cable Modem

192.168.123.254
home DT -----------USR Wireless MY LT 192.168.123.103
XP Pro Router XP Pro
192.168.123.102

---------everything works-------------------



DSL Modem 3 ports to other systems

192.168.1.254
Office DT --------Uniden Wireless My LT 192.168.5.12
XP Pro Router XP Pro
(recent
clean Wireless LT
install) XP home
192.168.5.11 wireless LT
98 SE

---------------all LT can talk to each other-----------------
--------DT can see first shared resourse but cannot browse it---------
sees my LT name and the two shared folders I enabled on the XP home
system.- I didn't play much with the 98 system except to verify I
could browse it from mine

all permissions are default - I changed nothing

On any XP Pro computer, check to see if Simple File Sharing (Control Panel -
Folder Options - View - Advanced settings) is enabled or disabled. With XP Pro,
you need to have SFS properly set on each computer. Depending upon whether you
have all XP Home, all XP Pro, or some of each, SFS may be advised.


File sharing is totally enabled on my LT - I can access anything at
home - all SFS.
office DT has sharing enabled also SFS
other LT(XP home) had sharing enabled on specific folders which
appeared on the DT browser, but I could not access them - path not
found. SFS


With XP Pro, if SFS is disabled, check the Local Security Policy (Control Panel
- Administrative Tools). Under Local Policies - Security Options, look at
"Network access: Sharing and security model", and ensure it's set to "Classic -
local users authenticate as themselves".


Not an issue - SFS is enabled - Home DT computer is set to Guest Only

With XP Pro, if you set the Local Security Policy to "Guest only", make sure
that the Guest account is enabled, thru Local User Manager (Start - Run -
"lusrmgr.msc"), and has an identical, non-blank, password on all computers. If
"Classic", setup and use a common non-Guest account, with identical, non-blank,
password on all computers.


not an issue - SFS enabled

For XP Home, OR for XP Pro with Simple File Sharing enabled, make sure that the
Guest account is enabled (for XP Pro, thru Local User Manager (Start - Run -
"lusrmgr.msc")), on each computer.

Guest account is enabled at home - will check office tomorrow

I tried to logon to the guest account on the XP home LT but didn't
know what the password was - not blank
It should be default because owner wouldn't know how to change it.
but I don't know what that is

Chuck

That's OK. You only did half of the tests.

So do them again - and please present the results in a complete state, as I
described, so I can see what the results were. Your descriptions above are not
terribly useful.

When you're sick you go to the doctor. And he has tests done - sometimes
multiple tests until he gets conclusive results. Try and get conclusive results
please.

Default Someone knows - can't browse network

Thanks for your help Doc, but I can't give you any better information.

It can't find the network path from the DT to any LT or vice versa
when I try to browse a visable network share. It can see the share
name when the LTs are connected. My LT can't see or browse itself when
connected to the office router, but has no problem at home.

I have absolutely no problem when my LT is connected to MY DT even if
the workgroup name is different. I did it with WinXP on all systems. I
now have WinXP SP2 on my LT and DT but not on the office DT.

The router is working because 2 LTs can see and browse one another.
All systems can access the inet thru the router.
symtoms are the same hard wired or wireless.
there is a firewall on my LT but not on the DT or other LTs. I turned
it off. the problem remains the same.
I can't browse by name or IP address.
As far as I can tell, all settings are the same on my lT and the DT as
relates to any networking function.

the only thing that is different is that I have 10 users on the office
DT and only one on the home DT - why would that prevent connecting
with LTs.

That is all I can tell you.
