Network Chaos

  Hetti 07:28 09 May 2006

I have had two PC's networked for abt two yrs, with no problems, but a couple of days ago a strange thing happened, when I was typing text on the main PC the text started to appear on the one upstairs in the work my hubby was busy with, it was also changing pages as I changed them downstairs, this is very inconvenient as we can now only use one PC at a time,

I run win XP home any help gratefully recieved

How are you networked? Through a Router? Do you access the Internet from both PC's via a Router? Are the PC's simply connected by a cable? Do you share a printer?

As much detail as possible will help other forum users make suggestions.
