  simonsup 06:59 15 Jun 2005

Hi peeps, my pc is connected to my partners pc using 2 ethernet cards (realtec cards) and the usual patch cable for the last 12 months without a problem until now. i am the host pc and there r no problems at my end. On the other pc all i can get is limited conectivity and when i try and repair the connection it fails saying cannot renew i.p. adrress. I have tried everything i know but to no avail. I also connect to the web via ntl broadband usb cable modem if that helps. I`ve tried running network wizard which seems to be ok apart from the same problem on my partners pc....HELP ME PLEASE. Thanks...

Have you checked all the shares and permissions on your partners machine and also the TCP/IP settings?

Another thought is the cable working ok?
