My network has gone haywire. I can access my laptop from my desktop but I can not access my desk top or printer from my laptop. Any idea's. It has worked before. Seems like when I print from my laptop I can do that once and then lose contacxt from laptop.

Hi there,

This is not uncommon. I had the same problem. The first thing I want to check is this: Are you by any chance running Norton Antivirus (or any other Noton/Symantec incarnation)? This is known to fiddle with a registry setting known as IRPStackSize. Have a look here for how I fixed my problem (read the whole thread first before trying a fix). Let me know if you need any help or further clarification.
