    Loosing Connection (XP Pro/ME)

    I have 2 computers, one with XP Pro and one with ME. They are connected with hub. When starting the pc's all is working well. After working some time, I loose the connection to MSHOME. Ping is not working any more (Use 192.168.x.x). Anybody some ideas ?

    If you have a Firewall built into the hub and also run an additional firewall on each computer try uninstalling the firewalls on the computers. If that helps, as it did for me, then reinstall the firewalls and see if continues to work. I have no idea why this worked for me but it did. I'm not sure exactly what your hub is but I use a Linksys router and it had a built in firewall. In addition I run ZoneAlarm on each machine and I encountered very similar problems to yours until I did what I just described.

    There is unless you turned OFF the one on the XP machine, because it is ON by default.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
