    I have two machines running WinMe. I connect to the net via a cable connection running thru a router. On one machine, I cannot get onto the net, while the other machine gets right on, using the same cable. Are there any settings somewhere that I might check to determine the cause? I was able to get on the net with both machines yesterday. I may have inadvertantly changed a network or some kind of connection configuration. Please advise as to what settings should be checked. Thanks. I doubt it's a hardware problem because it was working yesterday. Thanks.

    This could be alot of things. You say it was working at some point so it shouln't be a connecton problem ?, i.e., something plugged into wrong port, I assume you tried re-boot, try at RUN type WINIPCFG, hit RELEASE ALL, then RENEW ALL, that is if ME has this function.
