My computer running XP shows up in the Network Neigborhood of my other computers (running NT or 98), but when I try to access it I get the error 'The network path was not found'. If I ping its IP address, it's ok. If I swap the driver of the network adapter (either by Roll Back or Update Driver), the problem goes away, but returns when I re-boot. Any ideas?

Yes, I do have shares.

I have already deleted and re-installed the device, but the problem persists.

Hello,
I think its a password issue. What I would do is set all the usernames and passwords the same and see what happens.
Good Luck

Did you get anything to work. I can't even see it on other computers. I get the same error message also. The weird thing is that I have DSL hooked to my server and then out to my workstations and I can access the internet with the XP machine but I can't share server files. I have XP Home Edition. I'm at wits end and about ready to format C: and install Win 98.

I finally got it to work by removing the driver AND protocols, and re-booting (it then re-installs itself).
