I have a bunch of computers set up on a workgroup for printer sharing.  I have one computer that has a label printer attached to it that the other computers need access to.  Periodically throughout the day they complain that they can't print and I find that I cannot access the computer anymore through My network places.  A simple reboot solves the problem but this is happening more and more often.  Let me reiterate, the workgroup is setup correct and 95% of the time we can access the printer attached to their computer.

Maybe you should have to check the cable connection if it is stable all the time.  It should not lose contact from the hub/switch going through your network port.

Try to run the system file checker maybe a system file has been corrupted.

To run it simply follow below's procedure :

1. for Win98 - simply Click Start ---> Run ---> sfc
2. for Win2k - simply Click Start ---> Run ---> sfc/scannow

Additional info, be sure that the machine who wants to print must have logged in to the Network.  This means, that the user must supply username/password during logging in to the Microsoft Network.


Goodluck!
