    I have home network, desktop (win98), laptop (win98se) using W2WIRE, with home portal.

    Desktop: When I right click on the network icon from the desktop, Map network drive; I get ...Drive E: (ok) But when I check the box Reconnect at log on. IT DOESN'T STAY CHECKED. So...when I am on the laptop, I can access my shared files from the desktop, but I cannot access my printer (which is connected to the desktop.) My desktop does not see my laptop at all.

    This is a brand new problem. Everything has been working ok for past several days. This was the first place I went to check out why this was happening, and there it was...disappearing check mark. :confused: Any ideas what would cause this and how to fix???
