Problems in My Network


8 Feb 2004
Hell, hopefully someone can clear up a problem I am having. I have three computer with a variety of hardware and software all running a variety of Windows XP. I have them all networked via ethernet. Recently, I have had a problem with the way the computers are being listed in My Network Places. After a new install of Windows, all the computers are being shown properly by name, such as Kohler1, Kohler2, etc. After downloading all the updates and everything, and after accessing each local partition and/or drive, that partition and/or drive starts showing up as unknown. It only shows up like this on the computer that you are on. All other computers see it correctly in My Network Places. Even though each computers harddrive is showing up as unknown on that computer the network still works. It just bothers me that it is not being shown correctly. Hopefully, I have explained this so that everyone can understand it. Any help that you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks, Jeff.

After troubleshooting for a while I am starting to think that maybe one of the patches off of Microsoft's update site might be causing it. Not sure though.

Might have better luck if this was posted in the networking section.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
