    My friend describes his connection issues as follows. If anyone can suggest
    anything, it would be appreciated:

    Hello,
    I have 5 computers which are set up in my network
    Somehow yesterday I could not access from one computer to another on all
    computers in the network. I have computers named Sys1, Sys2, Sys 3 , Sys4 and
    Sys5. My problems starting with Sys1



    Sys 1 After clicking on my computer under Network drives I only see

    drivec on Sys 3 and drivec on Sys 5

    drivec on Sys 2 and drive on Sys 4 do not show up any more so I can not
    access those computers from the network from Sys 1



    Sys 2 is correct, After clicking on my computer under Network drives I see
    and can access Sys 1, Sys 3, Sys 4, and Sys 5, which are all the other
    computers in the network.



    Sys 3 After clicking on my computer under Network drives I see

    drivec on Sys 1 , drivec on Sys 2 drivec on Sys 4 and drivec on Sys 5

    I can acess all other computers on the network except for drivec Sys 2

    drivec Sys 2 shows up but has a red X through it. When I click on it

    a window pops up saying, “An error occurred while reconnecting to drive Sys 2

    Microsoft windows network. The network path was not found.



    Sys 4 all is correct, can access all other computers on network.



    Sys 5 After clicking on my computer under Network drives I see

    drivec on Sys 1 , drivec on Sys 2 drivec on Sys 3 and drivec Sys 4, which is
    all other computers on network.

    However when I click on drive Sys 2, a window pops up saying, “An error
    occurred while reconnecting to drive Sys 2

    Microsoft windows network. The network path was not found. Unlike Sys 3
    there was no red X through Sys 2



    System OS as follows
    Sys1=Window 2000
    Sys2=XP Pro
    Sys3=Windows 2000
    Sys4=Windows 2000
    Sys5= XP PRo

    Thanks for your help
