Thanks Robert. What exactly would you have me do. Here is what I did from
IPCONFIG on Machine A (with no LAN) shows the LAN IP, the WAN IP, Gateway,
enabled, Autoconfig enabled. Except for the LAN IP and the physical
address, it looks like Machine B.
Net View shows all the machines on the LAN, Currently 4.
NBTSTAT shows the local machine and the group. There is a difference here
in that on machine A, it shows
the local machine 3 times and the group twice. On machine B is only shows
the local machine 2 times (every other
entry), In the TYPE section on machine A it has <00> unique, <03> unique and
<20> unique for the local machine and
<00> group and <1E> group. On machine B it looks like this:
Local Area Connection:
Node IpAddress: [192.168.1.100] Scope Id: 
NetBIOS Local Name Table
Name Type Status
BBS <00> UNIQUE Registered
INFINITI <00> GROUP Registered
BBS <20> UNIQUE Registered
INFINITI <1E> GROUP Registered
Running NBTSTAT gives the following results. On machine A it has:
Netbios names resolved by braodcast:
shows machine C (We haven't talked about this one) 8 times.
From machine B is shows:
machine C 6 times and machine A 1 times with a <00> by it.
From Machine C is shows:
machine B 7 times one with <00> and machine A 1 times with a <00> by it.
I am not familair at all with what this is telling me, hopefully you can
tell me.. :)
I see where it says on that ChicagoTech page where if it shows <20>, NetBios
used, but it was NOT installed by me, unless they mean it's using it for the
I am able to ping in both directions, 192.168.1.103 >< 192.168.1.100. from
Also tracert to 192.168.1.103 (machine A) takes 1 hop and is done in 1ms
This is so weird, Everything says it should work but it does not!!
What else would you have me check at this point?
