Netbios name resolution problems (includes ipconfig and browstat info)

Chris

Here is the information from several computers that are having trouble
with NetBIOS resolution. shares do not work with Netbios names, but
they work OK with IP addresses. They are behind a Netgear WR614Gv4
wireless "router".

When trying to connect to a share on the other computer they report that
the machine was not found.

Install and use WINS - and dish out the WINS server IP (and node type 0x8)
to all clients in your DHCP scope.

Chris,

As LanWench suggests, use a WINS server. Or fix the Node Type.

Also, is NetBT explicitly enabled on all computers?

I had to do the registry edit and enable NetBT that way. It took a
couple of reboots but after that everything worked perfectly.
