My networking is broken...
I have two NICs in this machine, one of which is connected to the university network, and one of which is connected to my laptop via a switch.
Now the Uni connection works perfectly (hence I can type this), but the laptop and this machine refuse to acknowledge each other's existence - ie they can't even ping one another. They have the IPs 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.5. The physical connection is working fine (all the blinkenlights come on
) and Windows pops up the info balloon saying it's connected at 100Mbps.
The laptop has XP Home and this machine 2000 Pro.
Now, I didn't change anything in software at all... all I did was shut down my desktop and remove a hard disk, then reboot... so what's going on??
Thanks for your help in advance
