:thumbsup:

I'm having a problem with a computer on my network. I have 3 computers on a network, one of them is the Gateway. They are all connected to a switch.

My problem is that one of them is unable to access the internet. It'll be able to for about 3 minutes, but then it'll 'conk out' after then, and I won't be able to do anything on the internet on that computer. I've tried installing TCP/IP, but it still won't work.

I'm running WinXP Pro sp2 on all 3 computers.

HELP!!!!!

Are they all usuing different IP addresses? Are they private addresses like 192.168.1.x.

Is the compute rhaving the trouble the gateway or one of the ones that uses it as a gateway?

Does your router display any 'Limited or no Connectivity' message? When the internet fails, are you still able to PING your router/ share/ access files on the other computers in your network?

All their IPs are different and no, it doesn't display "limited or no connectivity", and I can still access shared documents.

What type of internet connect do you have and is there a reason why you dont use a router to share the internet (gets rid of unnecssary complications for little money)

Windows XP PRO SP2 causes a lot of problems. That may be one of them. I wouldn't recommend installing SP2 for Windows XP PRO. :thumbsup:
