Network computers don't see each other

  Red Devil 22:51 06 Oct 2003


I've been running a network for a year or so and everything has worked fairly well. Now - for some reason I can't fathom my computers can't see each other on the network.

I've checked all the hardware connections. Checked my device managers to make sure everything is working fine but the computers just won't see each other.

My setup is:-

1 pc running XP, 1 running ME with both connected via a Netgear hub.

Any suggestions as to what I can check/try to get my network functioning properly again?

Have you just set up or upgraded a Firewall?

I've been using the same firewall for 11 months now - Norton Personal Firewall.

Changed the IP address on the computer with ME and the computers see each other now.

Wonder why they stopped seeing each other, though.
