Hi, I have a strange problem that's cropped up. I have a network of 9 computers, all using a workgroup. All worked fine until last night when I hooked a USB drive up to the only laptop in the group. The drive wasn't recognized for some reason (?) but since then my laptop cannot access the workgroup. I don't see how these events can be related, but the timing seems to indicate this. Here's what I've found: -error: "FSP is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this resource. Contact the administrator to find out if you have access permissions. The list of servers for this workgroup is currently unavailable." -I cannot ping the laptop from any networked workstation -I cannot ping any networked workstation from the laptop -All computers can ping the gateway and themselves -all computers can access the internet -I can see the laptop in "workgroup computers" on any workstation, but I cannot access it. -I cannot see any workstations in "workgroup computers" on the laptop. -I can access to and from the laptop using IP addresses, but not names. The reason why I need to use names is that I use this network as a render farm and it does not work correctly using the IP addresses. Firewall/antivirus has been disabled. OS is a combination of XP Pro, XP Home and Win2K. The laptop is XP Pro ver 2002, SP2. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!
