I have internet, can ping local workgroup PC's by IP address and by computer name but I can not map to shared folders or access shared printers or even see other peer computers. The two XP machines work just fine as did this Vista until I had a problem a while back.

Services not starting are:
Diagnostic Service Host. Error 5
Link Layer Topology Discovery Mapper. Error 1075
TCP/IP Netbios Helper. Error 1075

I cannot determine what driver(s) or registry entries may be involved to diagnose this. I have added the IP and computer name to LMHOSTS.SAM but still cannot see the other workstation. Is there any tool that will give me a clue where to go?

I found a patch. Instead of trying to map a printer or shared folder by using its host name (\\localxp-pc\shared-printer) I used its ip address instead \\192.168.2.100\shared-printer and it worked.



Still cannot get tcp/ip netbios helper service to start.

Please see this Link for Xp which may be applicable to your Vista system.
