    I have a 7 computer peer-to-peer network connected through
    a 15 port hub. Each machine is running winxp sp1. I have
    one machine that I cannot get on the network. I am
    convinced the physical connection is ok. I've tested the
    line and I have a light at both the computer and hub.
    When I pull the plug on the connection, winxp gives me the
    network cable unplugged message. However, if I try to
    ping the hub I get a host destination unreachable
    message. ipconfig/renew gives me similar results. I have
    reinstalled the drivers several times to no avail. I'ts
    almost like windows sees the card at one level, but
    someplace else in the tcp/ip stack it does not. Does
    anyone have any idea how to troubleshoot this problem. If
    I had any hair I'd be pulling it out. Thanks!

  2. Hello

    One thing to keep in mind, is that XP Home has 5 connections only
    and XP Pro has 10 ok also you have not mention if your running Hm
    or XP Pro, so can you provide that info
