Hi could somebody, please help. I have two systems that I have networked on a simple cable to system without a hub. I used windows network xp wizard to configure both systems that are both running XP home. Everything works fine, but when I turn one of the systems off they both forget there network protocols and no longer see each other on the network.

Any assistance of advice much appreciated.

I do have an audigy sound card that is capable of networking. Could this be the spanner in the works?

Cheers Scott

Erm, call me dense here (most people do) but if you turn a machine off then its .erm , off IE no longer part of the network.

As for a networking soundcard , as far as I know the audigy has no networking capabilities but does have a firewire port.

sorry not very clear

Sorry it wasnt very clear was it. When I reboot the pc that is connected to my broadband and feeds the other pc it no longer has a network. It is fine when I run the wizard on both systems but when I restart the Pc (after installing new software etc) it has lost its network connection with the other pc. I then have to re-run the wizard on both pc's and again its is fine. I mentioned the audigy card as I understood that you could run a firewire network between two audigy armed pc's.

Any Ideas.

cheers Scott

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
