Hi Pam,
Have you checked the event viewer logs in adminstistrative tools in xp?
I solved a network problem I had from there.
Some of the errors pointed to my network problem, and once I figured out what
they were saying, I was able to solve it.

| MessageOk, here goes.  I have a Win2k box acting as server, with a win98
| client and a winXP client.  Not too long ago I took the Win98 box offline
| because of some trouble it is having, totally unrelated to this problem.  I
| had an older nic in the Win2k box that only allowed 10 Mbps speed.  It ran
| perfectly, ICS worked just fine, only problem was speed.  I installed a new
| nic, no problem... so I thought. If I leave the XP box set to obtain IP
| automatically, which is how it was set with the old nic on the server, then
| it can't find the server.  But if I set the IP manually then they both can
| see each other, I can share all files, access the printer, etc., but when
| set to manual the ICS doesn't work.  I'm sure it is something I overlooked
| because I am NOT a network person, but I went as far as my knowledge can go
| to find out what I didn't set correctly.
| Any suggestions/guidance definitely appreciated.

| a question but not going to go into it if no one is able to help.  Win 2k
| handles networking very different than Win 98 does.
