Network Group not accessible
In attempt to salvage pc that couldn't boot, just installed XP Pro from purchased IBM CD (not from original equipment purchase,but from retail outlet) onto Dell Inspiron 6000. Dell drivers were downloaded from Dell support site and successfully installed on pc. An HP officeJet which is network attached has successfully mapped its SD card reader to the letter Z: (probably via registry) and the printer will print documents from the pc. The pc can successfully ping the other network attached devices. PC seems to have full access to Internet, but has no access to home network group(MSHOME) - here is message:
"(MSHOME 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."
This is true whether the pc is connected via ethernet cable or wireless USB adapter.
ipconfig /all shows the following when connected via ethernet cable (the same for wireless connection except for device description, MAC addr, different IP Address, and Lease info):
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 2:
Have tried a) resetting entire network (routers, isp bridge router, etc.), b) enabling netbios over tcp/ip. It looks like somw kind of software problem on the pc, but I need some help in locating it. Thanks in advance for any help offered.
