Might be caused by your anti-virus software???  I know that Norton Anti-virus (most versions) have a unique module which blocks the NetBIOS name resolution protocol.  They label this module as "Internet Worm" security.  It lets you ping by IP address only until you configure it to allow your LAN IPs.

Hi, guys(?)

Just reading over your posts RE: NetBIOS and thought I might toss in some "what-if's"...

I typically modify/create...


... files on all of my machines.  This is something I discovered MANY years
back while munky-ing about in XP PRO/SERVER.  Now I know it should
not be necessary to do this but in the past I've found out that it actually
helps if/when I have a router/DNS/NetBIOs/etc mishap and need to
replace/rebuild one.  If you're a UNIX/LINUX vet, you'll immediately know
how/whut/why.  If not, it basically is a text-file that your system can use
for DHCP and HW/MAC-to-IPV4 'client-based' mapping.  It doesn't really -do-
lots, but if something 'serverish' breaks, your machines will individually 'know'
( because you typed them in!! ) 'where' everything else is ( or- at least should be!! )

I also LOVE using DHCP-Lease RESERVATIONS!! 
The D-Link 615 has an 'ok' method of implementing thm.
Sometimes it gives me fits about un-doing a IP-Lease/Reservation
which is a pain if your add/replace-ing a NIC or WiFi-Card to the net.

Food for thought maybe?

Thanks for the thread-- I actually hadn't thought about the virus software
impeding NetBIOs connections!!!  =oP
