Not sure if this belongs here or in networking but here goes. I've just completed a clean install of XP pro on a new hard drive. I have three computers on a home netwrok through a Belkin router. My printers are connected to another computer on the network. After a period of time, not sure how long but less than an hour, the offending computer cannot see the other computers on the network. As a result, I cannot print. The other two computers see each other just fine. I can do a restart and the connection gets re initialized but then the connection is dropped. When I try to print the application locks up and I then need to to use task master to stop the program. During these times, I still have internet access.
I have Norton IS 2005 on the offending PC and Norton 2007 on the computer with the printer. If I try to connect to the other computers using windows explorer, things lock and when I x out of explorer, the screen goes black and I have to do a hard restart. Suggestions, ideas as to how to solve this would be appreciated.
