Cannot browse workgroup after windows update

Post by QnJlbn » Sat, 17 Nov 2007 07:08:00


Hello,

I have 2 XP PRO boxes and 1 Win 2003 Server Standard that have automatically
updated themselves in the last 24 hours (as per their update settings) that
now cannot browse the network/workgroup.

If I try to map a drive I get "The drive could not be mapped because no
network was found". Existing drives still work and I can ping the server and
affect computers.

Under Network Places/Entire Network I can see the workgroup but clicking on
it does not reveal a list of computers.

Has anyone else encountered this situation after a recent windows update?

It could is name resolution or computer browser issue. Do you receive system
error if use net view command.

Net view results in the message: "The list of servers for this workgroup is
not currently available."

"The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available." is
system error 6118. This is firewall or computer browser issue. This links
may help.
