    We are a small firm, (2) individuals, we have (3) computers.

    We just upgraded our hard drive on our computer that acts as our server.

    Now we cannot access the other pc's nor can they access mine thru N.N. and computers near me.

    How can we re-establish this connection??

    It would help a bunch to know what O/S versions are in use, how the network is connected, etc. Do you have a hub, switch, router? Do you share Internet access? Did you clone the old system, or install from scratch?

    On one of the working computers, do this:
    Open a DOS window and type:

    IPCONFIG /ALL >C:RESULT.TXT

    Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.

    You have DHCP enabled on the computer you presented the IPCONFIG for. Since you have no DHCP server, you need to manually setup the IP addresses for this computer. Make it the same in the first three octets and different in the 4th from the other computers, i.e.

    Computer #1: 192.168.0.1
    Computer #2: 192.168.0.2
    Computer #3: 192.168.0.3

    Set the Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0

    It would help to see the IPCONFIG from one of the other systems.
