Hi

As per title, what does this mean in the ipconfig/all cmd screen?

I am having real problems with my network and was wondering if this has anything to do with it.

thanks!

Think of a lease as a time limit.

When your computer loads and its connected to a router, it asks the router for permission to talk to and through it to the internet. The router acts as a sort of security guard, checking your computer's permissions and gives you an address to use with that router.

The lease is how long your computer has that address for to communicate with the router. It can then use it to talk to the internet through the router. When the lease expires and the computer is still switched on, it asks for a new one, otherwise that address times out and is available to any other computer who asks for one.

I was running 3 XP computers on a linksys 4 port router. I was able to see shared files on all computers and it was fine! Computer A is running Zonelabs with medium firewall settings.

Then on one day for no reason when trying to access computer A from cumputer B i got the message ' MSHOME is not accessible.. contact administrator... list of serves for this workgroup is not currently available.

I tried rebooting etc but with no luck.

I was still able to see computer C from Computer B... until i ran the network wizard on all computers and now i get the error message on all machines!!

Its been like this and ive tried a few things listed on forums etc but i really need some help its driving me up the wall!

Do you think the initial problem would be with computer A or B?
Also when you run the wizard should you say its running via a HUB or another computer as both settings work, but one sets up an internet gateway.

Thank you!

This script is the same for all pcs however on one computer the node type is 'mixed' but this pc is probably the one which experienced the least problems.

I have been able to ping all machines by IP but not by name by the way.
