I have two computers networked together thru a Linksys 4 port router. Both computers run Win XP Pro. One is an AMD XP system on a Soyo Dragon and the other is a PIII on an Asus P3V4X. Every once in a while I will not be able to see the other computer on the network. Every time this happens the culprits is on the AMD system. In services for some reason "Workstation" gets disabled. As soon as I put it to automatic the computers see each other again and all is good. My question is what could be causing Workstation to disable itself randomly? TIA

go to the amd box and go to Run>type "sfc /scannow" (no quotes) to fix any errors in your configuration. otherwise you may need to re-install...that is my best guess

anyone else?

Thanks for the quick replies. I have run the system file checker and that is all good. Also have the latest drivers for both nics. The problem only happens about once every few weeks or so, it is very intermittent. Any other ideas?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
