Odd Network Problem
ad_pellaeon Dec-10-01 11:51 PM
I have a bit of a problem. I have two computers connected together thorugh a Linksys router which connects to the internet, and up to yesterday it worked fine. Suddenly, however, one computer was not able to be accessed across the network. The really odd thing is that the computer is able to ping the other. Any ideas on why it would not work. I am using peer-to-peer with TCP-IP as my only protocol. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Funny I just had a similiar problem, I recently set up a linksys router to share my @home (soon to be @comcast) connection. My G/F just called me minutes ago telling me that my one computer can not access the internet. I had her repower the modem then the router then restart the PC. It worked. Don't know if this will help you with your problem?

It is not the Internet which is the problem, both computers can access the Internet fine. However, one computer cannot see itself in Network Neighbourhood, and the other computer is unable to the the first computer as well. It worked fine for a while, and I am not aware of any system changes. However, I will try your advice and see if this will help.
Thanks

I have noticed this with my linksys router, often when I browse network neighborhood I do not see the other computers on the LAN. I try browsing a few minutes later and they show up....very wierd sounds like the linksys routers could be cuasing this...

Yes, this may be the cause. I have completely shut down and restarted and now the computers can see each other, weird. Anyway, thanks for the advice.
