View Full Version : Home Network Problems

14-10-2001, 09:22 AM
My laptop has w2000 and our desktop runs W98SE. I am using Netbeui to connect them and it works ok most of the time but when for example copying a large data file from one to the other by copy & paste I get random errors like ' can not copy (file name) The specified network resources or devise is no longer avaialable'

I had previously backed up my laptop to the desk top successfully but find I can not restore any files because the network randomly cuts out. The network used to work perfectly for copying and backups etc.

Any ideas.

Try installing additional protocols such as TCP/IP and IPX.

What NIC are you using? Have you downloaded and installed the latest NIC drivers from the net?

Could it be that the 'remote' machine has had nothing typed at its keyboard for a while, and shuts down for power saving? I don't approve of computers doing things I haven't told thenm to do.
