Home network problems.

2 PCs.
Main PC, Win XP Pro, Cable connection to internet.
Second PC, Win 98, connects to internet through Main PC.

All worked lovely for a long time, suddenly second PC can't connect to internet and I can't see the second PC on the network anymore from the main PC.

Checked physical network, all seems fine.
Run Win XP Network setup wizard again and installed on Second PC. Didn't fix it.

Any ideas? Not sure when it broke and if it's something I've changed. Pain in the ass though.

Are you getting anerror message?

In the XP pc go Start then Programs then Accessories then Command Prompt.

ping 102.168.0.2

and hit enter (if 192.168.0.2 is the IP Address of the second PC) does it time out?
