Dell Dock TB16 - NetBIOS over Tcpip Always Disabled

Jump to solution

I can't see how to enable the NetBIOS over Tcpip for the TB16 USB NIC.

I tried this and set it to 1-Enabled but it is still off. 

"NetbiosOptions"=dword:0 (to use DHCP settings)
"NetbiosOptions"=dword:1 (to enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP)
"NetbiosOptions"=dword:2 (to disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP)

wmic nicconfig get caption,index,TcpipNetbiosOptions

This returns "index number" (plug this into the next command):
wmic nicconfig where index="index number" call SetTcpipNetbios 1

_____________________________________________________________________________

 I have been changing with the wmic nicconfig DOS commands. It changes the same TcpipNetbiosOptions value but the NetBIOS over Tcpip property still says "No" on the TB16 USB Network Adapter. I updated the drivers also but it seems like a bug. It’s kinda cool, I can browse the laptop by name and not by IP address, never seen that before. 🙂

The NetBIOS over Tcpip property status for the Intel Network Adapter in the laptop changes when you change the TcpipNetbiosOptions but the TB16 USB Network Adapter seems to ignore any of the settings and NetBIOS over Tcpip is always off. I can just use the Intel Network Adapter in the laptop but then the dock is not as cool.

More info here but it will not let me post the found answer there???

TB16-NetBIOS-over-Tcpip-Disabled

Found the answer here if anyone finds this:

Netbios over TcpIP broken since upgrade to creators upgrade (or hyper-V feature installed)

 

I was finally able to solve the wins problem. I don't use Hyper-V so I can't speak on that.  On my network, only one machine was having this issue. Turns out that almost all references to my network adapter were deleted from the registry. This is what worked for me:

Under HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters\Interfaces\, you will see one or more Tcpip entries. To determine which Tcpip entry is referring to your network card, simply click on each one until you see one with DhcpNameServerList on the left with an ip address filled in. The long string of of letters and numbers in the { } by that key is what you are going to need. {your setting} will refer to that key. Basically, I just copied the keys already in the following and added {your setting} to each. 

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Linkage

Bind -example

Added:

\Device\Tcpip_{your settings}
\Device\Tcpip6_{your settings}
\Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{your settings}
\Device\NetBT_Tcpip6_{your settings}
\Device\Smb_Tcpip_{your settings}
\Device\Smb_Tcpip6_{your settings}

 

Do the same, matching the settings of the key and adding {your setting} to Export and Route. Each key will be different so make sure you match what's already there. Also do this to Bind, Export and Route to the following:

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Linkage

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBIOS\Linkage

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Linkage

Reboot the system.

This netbios issue isn't just a TB16 issue, this is a problem with the latest update of Windows.  I had this same problem with a USB3 NIC interface that wasn't a TB16, and then also with my Dell XPS 15's wireless NIC after I did a "reset network" through Windows to try and fix it (made things worse!). 

I ran across a command line utility that does the fix listed here and it works well (one minor issue with the app, you can see details on the 'issues' tab at the link below).

Hope this helps -- it certainly helped me.
