Hy, after several hundred Dollars lost, my network connection between two computers still fail.
Here are the details of what we have as far as hardware and software is concerned.
Mainboard AMD ( Mercury)
Size One computer 80 GB one 40GB
Programs Microsoft Service pac 2
Default Gateway 192.168.0.1
One computer is master and the other is slave.
The problem is that the second computer loses communication with the first one, not on the shared file and printer but to the internet.
This often happened previously when the power failed. We installed a battery backup but that did not fix the problem.
The icon on the slave, shows that the internet is connected but it is not and keeps wishing to dial out.
The modem and network cards are high grade APC and not the integrated AMD's
Please help if you have an answer!
