You have heard this time and time again but here is my problem. We have a NT server, 10 workstations running w98se, we use a hub, 10/100. We purchased a new computer for one of the workstations, we took the replaced one and moved it to a different workstation, then took that replaced station out completly. The computer we moved was giving us a lot of errors, I think the operator deleted more than just files, so I ended up re-formatting and re-loading W98se.
I copied the protocol, workgroup, and domain down from all the other computers. I have "microsoft for networks", the adapter card"," netbui",and file and printer shareing. in the network setup. I have checked the "share level access control", log on to windows nt domain" and logon and restore places. I have also checked netbui as default.
we only have one workgroup, and our domain and workgroup are named the same. when I boot up I get the "no domain server error" when I click cancel and go to nn I cannot see the other 9 computers but they can see me, they get an error if they try to access it. I have set up sharing on "my computer"
I have looked at the user's on the server and I see nothing different for this computer.
I tried removing all from the network setup , then disconnected the cable, then turned the computer back on, it found the adapter card, I installed the netbui again, and sharing etc. restared again but it still doesn't work.
The old machine was using the cable and connected just fine, so I don't think it is a cable.
I read all your postings on networking and saw one that said delete workstation from the server manager, if you think that would help would you tell me how to do that?
Thank you

On the workstation you are having trouble with, go to Network>Identification and note the machine name. On the NT server go to Server Manager, delete that machine name and enter a new name for that workstation. On the workstation enter the new machine name and reboot. You should be able to join the Domain.

I think I know what the problem is, I did as you suggested and that didn't work either so plugged the workstation into my workstation cable and it did just fine, I then took my workstation and plugged it into the other workstation cable and got the same error.
we are going to run another cable and see if that works.
thanks for your help
