I have 2 desktop computers and 3 laptops in a network using my linksys router. I just reformated this computer which is a laptop. After reformatting last night i installed the correct drivers and all the networking seemed to be working fine, and i could get my backup files i placed on another computer on to this computer fine.
It seems thats once my mom left for the weekend and brought her computer with her no computer can see another computer on the network under the name of our work group which is the default MSHOME.
What i am here to ask is if the removal of my moms computer could have messed up the networking for other computers, and when she brings her computer back, if it will just start working again.
Please help me before i go crazy and reformat again
