    greetings.. .

    I setup a lan with 2 computers both running Windows XP pro with SP1 anyway ... it was working perfectly until I tried to move something so I had to disconnect the client computer's Lan cable. When I connect the cable back .. the LAN connection doesn't work anymore .. I even ran the wizards again still no luck. Anyone encounter this weird problem b4 ?? any help will be great.

    thanks

    Chris

    Check your cables. You could have inadvertantly hosed one up. Try using a line tester on it.

    is the XP firewall turned on? It'll screw you every time.

    tried plugging cable in and rebooting? ;)

    rebooting solves 90% of probs...
