Thanks for your response.
The network was classified as or set as "Private network".
I had access problem with other machine in the past and at that time
cause of the problem was found to be that it was set as "Public" and
changing it to "Private" resolved the problem. So I am very much aware
of what you mentioned.
I do not remember that with this particular machine if the network ever
set as "Public" or not. Suppose it was onece set as Public, but I assume
that only the check marks are removed from certain list items such as
"Network Discovery". Maybe for some reason those entries needed for
Private networking were deleted instead when it was set as Public.
Another thing I should mention is that this installtion of Vista is done
by restoring backup image of an installed and working Vista. It could be
that the network access problem began when the OS was restored. If
this is the case then there could be flaw in either back up process or
