xp home/pro network loses settings on host system restart
Posted on 2003-02-22
I have a network set up between two computers, to share the internet connection. They are linked directly (i.e. no hub) via fast ethernet NICs. The host computer (with internet connection) is running XP home, the other XP pro. When the host computer is restarted, the network no longer works at all (no file/print/internet connection sharing), until the wizard is run again on both computers. the network bridge remains in place, though. This was not an issue until i upgraded the client computer from win98 to xp pro.
