I am getting a message saying my LAN cable is unplugged when it is obviously making a good connection.

WinXP SP2 on Dell Dimension 4500.

I'm using a twisted-cable LAN cable for peer-to-peer Microsoft default network - mshome.

Connecting to a laptop with WinXP (no SP on this one - as soon as I can connect the flipping things I'll get it from the net...).

I just feel it must be something simple...
