    The problem I am having is that no computer can access the server (with MS windows server 2003 installed) yet it can access all other computers.

    By not being able to access it I mean that it cannot be pinged in command prompt. The funny part is, the server DOES come up in "Network" but when I go to double click it it comes up with the usual: "Windows cannot access *name*. Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there may be a problem with your network. To try and resolve....press Diagnose"

    I have tried to connect via IP address with no results.

    The server is running NO firewalls (not even Windows firewall, as it wouldnt even start). It can connect to the network (other computers) or internet with no problems at all.

    Also, I have removed DNS/DHCP. The only two "servers" I have running are remote access and Print server.
