1) Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP in all the computers in the workgroup.
To do so,
Windows XP and Windows 2000:
Open the Network Connections folder.
Right click the local area network connection and click Properties.
Double click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
Click the Enable NetBIOS Over TCP/IP button.
On Windows 95/98/Me:
Click Start | Settings | Control Panel | Network.
Double click the TCP/IP->adapter entry for the local area network.
The I want to enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP box is normally checked and grayed
out. If it's un-checked, click the box to put in a check mark.
Also, make sure that the Computer Browser service is started. Click Start |
Run | Services.msc

I have 4 XP machines on a small network. Three are
desktops and one is a lapatop.
All do not have firewalls enabled. When I try to view the
workgroup on the laptop I get,
"Domain name is not accessable. You might not have
permission to use this network resource. Contact the
administrator of this server to to find out if you have
access permissions. The list of servers for this
workgroup is not currently available."
The laptop cannot see itself.
The laptop can ping all other units and can ping itself.
The other desktops can see the laptop, but get the same
error when trying to view the shared docs.
What is my problem?
