I'm running simple peer to peer on 6 XP machines with DSL modem, Befsr11 Linksys Router and a 16-port Netgear switch. Purpose: soft/file/print/net sharing. Everything is on static IP's and generally the LAN doesn't bitch.

One of the machines seems to be not reconnecting to a mapped drive at startup. When I mapped it I checked the "Reconnect at Logon" box and it still loses the connection. When I browse the drive it opens it fine although the icon still shows crossed as if it was disconnected...Any idea?

yeah, mine used to do that, said it couldnt find the drive, even though my user profile was on the same drive and loaded that fine!! what I did was created a logon script to map the drive and that fixed it.

just make a batch file containing "net use x: \\server\share" and put it in the start up folder.

logon script is different than a batch file in the start up folder, logon script would require a domain : )
