Internet -- yes; shares --no.
I'm almost ready to tell the joke about the helicopter in Seattle....

I have two desktops, one running XP Home, SP2, one running Vista Home
Premium. Each has all updates loaded except a driver for the NIC on the Vista
machine, which is not loaded because the last time I loaded it I could not
get any network connectivity until I unloaded it.

Internet access is through a dial up modem and ICS on the XP box, which
serves basically as a DVR and file server.

About four days ago, I came home from work to find the network was not
active. After running through virtually every possibility, I have been able
to restore internet access to both machines by hard coding the IP addresses.
Now I have internet access from both machines, but neither can see shares on
the other.

I can ping each machine from the other. The Vista box sees a digital video
recorder server that is running as a service on the XP box. On both machines
the network icon shows connected. On the Vista box the sharing center shows
connection to both local and internet.

Interestingly, Network Magic, which I installed on each machine some time
ago when the network failed, shows no network or internet access for either
machine, and in each case shows the other box as "offline." Every time I rest
the NIC from the Vista box, it changes the network type from private to
public (I posted something about that separately.)

I've sort of run out of debugging options and wonder if anyone has any
pearls of wisdom before I start rebuilidng machines.

Thanks,

Len,

Network Magic is just that. If you don't know magic, there's not too many ways
to figure out what's wrong.

Normally, you could look at logs from "browstat status", "ipconfig /all", "net
config server", and "net config workstation", from each computer, and maybe
diagnose the problem. Read this article, and linked articles, and follow
instructions precisely (download browstat!):

With NM in the picture, I'm not sure what you'll get. I'll help you, if you
want to give it a go.

Thanks for the offer of help. When I get home tonight I will uninstall NM and
begin the debugging process. I did discover over the weekend that I CANNOT
ping the XP machine.

Sorry to take so long to get back. I've appended the output

First, the vista machine (running Home premium) current except for latest
upgrade to NVIDIA lan adapter, because every time I installed it the netowrk
collapsed.

Now the XP output. Machine running XP Home, SP2, all patches current as of
today.

I've added output from net diag because it show what is probably the crucial
probably, that the gateway is unreachable. Hopefully you can advice me what
idiotic mistake I've made.

I think that's the key here, Len. Another nVidia nForce problem.

There was one oddity.

NetBT_Tcpip_{F97C3C14- ... -E8472F0C3A85} (0018F3CB227D) is what you'd expect to
see in a "net config" log.

NetBT_Tcpip_{F97C3C14- .. -E8472F0C3A85} (OFFICE) isn't what you'd expect to
see.

0018F3CB227D is the MAC address, which is also seen in the "ipconfig /all" log.

a MAC address of "OFFICE" could be a problem, because that's not defined
anywhere else.

Maybe you could rerun "net config server" and "net config workstation", and
we'll look again.

Re: Internet -- yes; shares --no.
Chuck:
Put this one in the file of unexplained phenonomon. Although the ipconfig
file reads the same, and although I have made no changes other than to plug
in an old laptop to see which of the two machines I could ping, now the
entire network seems to be working flawlessly. I guess I will just set a
restore point and move on. I could not find any process running that appeared
to be an Nvidia private firewall.

Thanks for your help.
