We know this happens over WiFi but that detail is not here. We also know there are issues with "XP" but so few run that but have XP SP1 to SP3 so that detail is missing. There are other issues with XP Home and the connection of FIVE that get gobbled up with ease.
Which there was a single answer but as it stands this could be some out of date XP, the old WiFi issue or just an ethernet adapter that is set to go to sleep when not needed.
II have a little peer to peer network with 4 other computers on it. I can access all the other computers but one. That one cannot be accessed unless I first run Advanced Lan Scanner which finds it just fine. After that it can be accessed.
This is odd in that I can access that computer from others with no problem so I suspect this machine. Its very mysterious.
Appreciate any thoughts.
