Windows XP Home network adaptor is disabled on its own.  Twice this two-computer peer-to-peer network has gone down, checked the adaptors and one of them was disabled.  When I enabled it, network back up and running.  Why is this happening?  Using DSL modem and USR Secure Storage Router.

check the power option of the disabled adapter, it might be set to shut the adaptor down  to save power.
