First of all, thank you for posting those step by setp procedures.
Well, i did all that but i still can't see any computer in "View workgroup computers".
Also, some steps you mentioned were not shown in my network wizard.
In Process 1:
Between step 7 and 8 the wizard shows a list of all connections available in my computer.
This is what it says:
Select your Internet connection from the list
ADSL WAN miniport (PPPOE)
Local Area Network VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter.
So, i chosed ADSL and then click Next. Then setp 8 window appears.
Also setp 10 window is not shown, instead a window sumarizing all the settings i applied appears. Click next and then it stats applying those settings.
I had to run the wizard two times because the first time it displayed an error while it was applying settings. The window said : "Cannot complete the network wizard.
An error has ocurred during configuration of the network on this computer.
You can configure the network manually, or you can run the wizard again with different settings".
I ran the wizard again and no error window was shown. Rebooted my pc but still couldn't see any computer.
Then deactivated all virus scanners, Ad Blockers and firewalls but nothing changed.
Finally i run the msconfig tool. Deactivated all none microsoft serivces, disabled all startup applications then click on the apply button and a window came up. It said "An access denied error was returned while trying to change a service. Log on as administrator to change settings" (i had to translate it. My apologies if it's not well written), funny thing becuase i have administrative rights. Also i couldn't identify which service couldn't be disabled because they were all unchecked.
Finally tryed to run msconfig in the other computer but it seems that this tool is not availabe on Windows 2000 Server.It says that the file was not found.
Rebooted but still the same problem.
I really have no idea what's not working.
Thanks in advance.
