Some days back we received a problem from one of our reader Shailesh Mohan saying:
When ever I try connect a any folder through Start >> Run and type \\192.168.0.100\foldername and error comes up: The Network is not present or not started in windows 2000
This problem is quite unusual, as this problem basically occurs because of a windows network service is stopped.
Lets see how can we fix this trouble.
The windows service which provides network connections is Workstation, which allows you to access network resources like printer , files over your network.
Workstation – It creates and maintains client network connections to remote servers. If this service is stopped, these connections will be unavailable.
How to fix it
1. Open Start >> Run and type “Services.msc” ( without quotes ) and press OK
2. Locate the service named Workstation.
3. Right Click on the workstation service and select properties, you will see a window shown below.
4. Click on the Start button to start the service, starting this service will fix the trouble.
We hope solution provided above will help to fix the trouble, if you have any other solution regarding this problem please share it through comments.
