I am getting the same message and my machine are 100%
pluged in. I have had this lan working for 6 months with
Win2000. I upgraded to XP and now I get this error. The
machine that is shown as unpluged can see files on the
other machine but the main server can not access the other
one. Both machines can get to the internet over the cable
modem file. Have you had any luck in finding a solution?
