Changed the Primary DNS suffix, now what??


Overclocked Like A Mother
Hey Guys,

I mistakenly changed the Primary DNS Suffix (System Properties->Computer name change). It had some weird coded name that I changed thinking it was something else. Now my home network is not working. Where can I find The Primary DNS Suffix to replace that one I mottled up? Thanks in advance.

that is for active directory domains, there shouldn't be anything in there on a home network, especially since your on XP home which cannot join domains. I would go back and make sure that entry is blank.

Yeah, it did. Funny, because it was working as well when it had the coded-looking name in there. But it did not work when I had my computer name in there.

Thanks again,

If you had a computer name was in there, your PC would be trying to join a domain called "Computer name" and wasn't joining in your LAN workgroup
