ive had a crossover connection for ages now between two computers just to share files, play games etc. (not internet connection). since both computers have upgraded to xp service pack 2, one computer automatically disables the local network connection on startup.
a minor bug yeh, but still irritating. because of this, i have to manually start the connection on one computer to do any network activity at all. While the connection is disabled both system tray network icons have the red cross at the bottom and the bubble pops up saying that the network drives can't be reconnected. is there anyway to default the lan connection to connect on startup?
