    I have a Windows Home Server SP3 (Windows server 2003).

    I took my computer over to my cousins house and I wasn't able to share the folder over the network.

    I am back at my house trying to fix this now.

    I tried various things but still couldn't get it working.

    When I open network connections it says (empty)

    I can get to the internet and ping my laptop but my laptop cannot ping the server.

    Whenever I try and install a new network adapter I get "The RPC server is unavailable"

    Also the network connections service says "starting".


    When I do ipconfig /all next to the ethernet adapter it has a long hash tag instead of the name.

    Anyone know how I can fix this?

    Symptom: Your network connections folder is empty.

    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, follow each one with the Enter key:

    regsvr32 netshell.dll
    regsvr32 netcfgx.dll
    regsvr32 netman.dll

    Reboot the computer.
