I have a LAN (via LinkSys DSL router) that has worked beatifully for 11 months. Last week PC #2 had a new video card installed (ATI Radeon 9700 PRO, not sure if it matters) but PC#2 is no longer sharing resources with the LAN. THis also happens to be a gaming PC my son uses. He claims he didn't change anything.

PC#2 connects to the Internet, it can be ping'd by other PC's on the Lan. PC # 2 can also ping other PC's.

From PC#1 , when I click on [Computers Near Me] , then the ICON that is PC#2 I get a message "Network Path Not Found".

From PC#2 doing the same thing I get " List of network servers currently not available"

After running NETDIAG on both PC's the results were identical.

The only difference I can find is when IPCONFIG reports all of the working PC's as {NODE TYPE - BROADCAST} and PC#2 reports {NODE TYPE - PEER to PEER}

How and where can I change the node type on PC#2 and will it solve my problem?

The TCP/IP protocol just had to be uninstalled then re-installed to solve the problem. Node Type was restored to [Broadcast] and everything works again.
