    Working with laptop and although I can ping school network, and yet I cannot browse the network. Only laptop out of 30 with an issue - all others are connecting fine.


    Things I've done
    Turned off firewall and antivirus
    Tried logging it on the domain
    Tried giving it a fixed IP address
    Tried changing elements in registry
    Tried changing elements in Services.msc
    Tried dropping it from a great height......I wish!

    On verge of doing a complete rebuild....unless someone can come through for me. Am in a meeting for next hour or so - but will answer any Qs as quick as I can

    Have you checked all the services?

    Check your Services are Started on all PCs:
    • Computer Browser
    • DHCP Client
    • DNS Client
    • Network Connections
    • Network Location Awareness
    • Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
    • Server
    • TCP/IP Netbios helper
    • Workstation

    Note: You can check the services in Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services.

    All of these services should be started, and their startup type should be automatic (or perhaps manual).


    I'd like to see this as well.

    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands, one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

    Note that there is a space before the -n or the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the - or / in the following commands.

    NBTSTAT -n

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

    It's one of those lightbulb moments! I will sort it first thing in morning. Yet again JohnWill - brilliant - when can you become clairvoyant?
