Local Area Connection icon disappers frequently
Posted on 2006-04-07
Experts, please help me on this
I have 3 DELL OPTIPLEX GX240 PCs and 1 HP Brio PC running Windows 2000 have a problem with the Network connection. The problem is as follows:
When I login to them I find that when I right-click "My Network Places" icon and then select "Properties" option, the "Local Area Connection" and the "Make New Connection" are missing. These latter icons are where I normally set my Network settings e.g entering DNS so I can browse the web. Their absence seems to make the www to be unavailable. The icons only appears when I restart the computer and the www works,but next morning when I login I find that the icons has disappeared again so I need to restart the PC again and this annoys me.
The question is: What is the problem with the 4 PCs and what is the permanent solution?
