Networking 2 windows xp
Posted 28 February 2006 - 01:57 AM
I spent hours and hours on this and tried everything in these forums with no luck. A tech guy at my job was kind enough to help me with this issue. His advice:
With all computers on the network turned on, follow these steps on each computer.
1. Go to Start/ All Programs / Accessories /Command Prompt
2. Type ipconfig /flushdns and hit Enter. (ipconfig [space] /flushdns)
3. Type ipconfig /registerdns and hit Enter. (ipconfig [space] /registerdns)
Now, try viewing workgroup computers and accessing each. (Start/ My Newtwork Places/ View Workgroup Computers)
I hope this works for you, too! If not, try the advice from the previous threads (which I did), and then try this again.

I've tried a number of things. The thing that initiated the quest was loss of internet for one of my computers. I have four PCs on a linksys WRT54GS gateway. Three are working fine, the fourth can access the other computers as well as the gateway (192.168.1.1), but cannot find the internet for some reason. I tried installing the latest internet browser to no avail. Firewalls have been disconnected, leaving only the router firewall, which is apparently all that is needed fro a home network.
The PCs are all windows XP SP2.
I can ping any computer to any other computer and can connect from the problem computer to any other computer. But none of the other computers can connect to the problem computer, which leads me to suspect that this is related to the internet connection failure.
I've tried mapping the drive with connection to a different user, IRPStackSize, and a few other diagnostics, but haven't solved it yet. Any ideas?

1- Open dos prompt, type ipconfig -all.
2- Look at the 'Node Type' it probably says Peer-Peer or something (this is what mine said)
... we want it to say 'Hybrid'
3- Press 'Start' button > Run... > In the box type regedit. This opens your system's registry.
4- Navigate the tree to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/NetBT/Parameters
5- Rt. mouse click and select New > DWORD Value
6- Name it 'NodeType' (without the quotes)
7- Rt. mouse click on it and select Modify
8- Set Value Data to '8' (no quotes)
9- Leave Base alone. 'Hexadecimal' should be selected
10- Press 'ok'
11- Close regedit and reboot. (Your done!)
12- Open dos prompt and type ipconfig -all
For node type it should now say 'Hybrid'
13- Do this to the other computer that you cannot network. Your computers should be able to see one another.
I do not know what 'Hybrid' is, but perhaps some of the network freaks might be able to explain. I have used this on two different occasions and it seems to be the only thing that works.
Now, my desktop cant even see my laptop!! So i have gone a step backwards. Any advice on how to reverse this without wrecking my registry? (i'm jumpy about changing it in the first place, and this has proved me right)

I have 3 XP Pro computers and a Mandriva 2007 computer on an Ethernet with an ADSL box. The problem was that one of the XP computers could access shares on all of the other computers but none of the others could access this particular one’s shares. All had the AVG anti-virus and the MS Firewall in operation.
I “rtfm”ed every thread I could find on the internet about this but none solved the problem.
NETBIOS, file & printer sharing were set on all, IPCONFIG gave similar results for all, all were in the same workgroup with different IP addresses and names. All had hosts and lmhosts files identical. Client for Microsoft Networks was loaded on all. I had been through every TCP/IP, network, firewall, Security Policy and every other parameter I could think of.
The main clue was that everything worked properly if the Microsoft Firewall was disabled on the XP system that would not allow the others to access its shares. Because of the ADSL box, leaving the Firewall off was not an option. So there was something wrong with the Firewall. But what? I compared every parameter in the “Exceptions” and “Advanced” tabs on the Firewall “cpl” (control panel applet) – nothing appeared awry. Incidentally, I could not “ping” the errant XP system but otherwise everything could “ping” everything else.
Eventually I noticed the “Restore Defaults” button on the advanced tab of the Firewall “cpl”. Taking note of the current settings in the “exceptions” and the “advanced” tabs, I hit the “Restore Defaults” button. The problem was now solved. All I had to do was to put back manually (I could have reinstalled the relevant packages) the settings I had lost.
It would seem that the MS Firewall has the capability of getting its knickers in a twist without you being able to see the specific problem. I guess that the “Restore Defaults” has been put there for a reason.
Hope this is of use to someone out there.
