Why does this happen !

Bytes Back

Ex Police Chief
We have four machines at home. All connected to a switch and getting out on the net using ICS on my machine.

When I'm playing online I right click the LAN icon and disable it so the kids/wife dont eat all the bandwidth. When I'm finished I enable it.

Quite often after this the other machine just cant get back on the net. If you do a right click/repair the it may work. Otherwise you have to set it up all over again.

Why does this happen and has anybody got any better ways of disabling the network. ( Dont say pull the plug, the switch is a pain in the rear to get to as is the back of my machine :) )

when i had that problem i had 2 shortcuts on the desktop

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

used to sort it for me without having to look too deep into the problem.

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
