My home Windows XP Pro SP3 machine is DHCP client receiving configurations from ISP.
Trying to access in WindowsExplorer
-My Network Places
- Microsoft Windows Network
shows Workgroup with a delay of 3 min and then popups messagebox:
Microsoft Windows Network
Workgroup is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available
I am logged-in as local machine Administrator.
The internet is accessible (I am writing this post through it)
The Firewall is disabled
The "Computer Bowser" and all networking services, I could find, are running
Control Panel --> Network Connections --> Properties (of connection) ---> Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), btn Properties ---> ---> tab General, btn "Advanced..." --> tab WINS--> rbtn "Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP" checked
Why cannot I access my own PC (and shares on it) through My Network Places
What is the possible problem?
How to daignose the problem?
