XP Pro workstation was working on peer to peer network connected to a DSL Internet connection for 1 month then stopped. Cannot connect to DSL router. Set uo a share with another workstation (XP Media Center) the 2 weeks ago. Everything was working fine then both pc's stopped working. Rebooted router and switch then Media Center PC worked but XP Pro still does not work. Help me please.
