Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are you using static IP addresses? If so, check the computer NIC IP address settings on all computers. If using DHCP, open a command window on the problem computer and type

<b>ipconfig /release <enter></b>

<b>ipconfig /renew <enter></b>

This should assign a new address to the computer unless there is a reservation in DHCP. If there is a reservation, then you need to go to the other workstations in the network and see if one of them has the problem IP address assigned. Perform the /release & /renew tasks on that computer after changing the settings to DHCP.

Let us know how you get on.
