    I need some guidance in resolving my current problem:

    Hardware:
    dell latitude 266 cpi, 128 meg, Win98SE, current with updates.
    bios revision A04 (a12 is current)

    wireless network card:
    d-link air dwl650L1 (square antenna, two leds)
    driver version: 1.64
    utility version: 3.0

    wireless access point:
    d-link DI-614+

    network: TCP and netBEUI bound to the network card
    internet: dsl thru a speedstream router attached to the WAP

    Background:
    The dell used to have a wired connection via a linksys fast ethernet 10/100 pc card. Network capabilities were fully functional

    Problem:
    I can get out to the internet
    I can ping the other machines on the network
    I can see the dell from other machines
    I cannot see other machines from the dell: network neighborhood shows nothing.

    So far:
    I have removed and re-added hardware thru the control panel
    I have removed and re-added network protocols.


    TIA for your help!


    Jim

    more information:
    From the dell, I can see one of my micron desktop if I start->run and type in \\micron. Network neighborhood is still unresponsive.

    the answer, as usual operator error.
    Zone Alarm was restricting IP access. When I move the dell from wired to wireless, the router assigned a different IP address, outside the range of the 'trusted zone'. After expanding the trusted zone on all the computers on the network and rebooting the dell, network neighborhood was restored to health.

    Thanks for listening.
