I have a workgroup of about 4 computers.
They are connected to a DD-WRT router with a ADSL modem behind that.
The network has been newly setup and I used to be able to type in a
computer name like \COMPUTER1 to view its shares etc, but now I cant,
however the \192,168.1.xxx still works.
What troble shooting steps can I take to find the problem?
At this stage it only seems to be effecting some PC's.
PS: Where is the "connection specific dns suffix coming from? My is
currently set to home, even though the workgroup name defined in each
PC in XP is WORKGROUP?
