Windows XP network issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a 5 computer network. All computers are running windows XP. Computers 1-4 (for ease of explanation) can see all 5 computers and all 5 computers can access the broadband internet. But Computer 5 can't seem to see the other computers on the network. Computer 5 can ping the other computers. Also it had file and print sharing enabled as well as netbios enabled. The computers are on a domain (all set to the same domain) 

    And for further information the computer was working just fine together and then the DSL modem quit working  and was replaced. The network came back on computers 1-4 came back up jut fine. No settings were changed on computer 5, at least untill after this issue has cropped up. And again it is reading the internet and pinging the other computers.

  • What do you see on Computer 5 when you type \\Computer Name 1 (or 2, 3 or 4) into the Address bar of an Explorer window?
