Sounds like a conflict, have you just got the one Network card?

If so, try reinstalling the drivers for it.

Your motherboard has one lan controller built in is this enabled and the drivers loaded. If so try changing the pci slot the other network card is in the the furtest away from the AGP slot.

what commands are you using?

Have you connected each machine directly to the other?

If so, are you using a CROSSOVER cable?

In this situation, a normal straight through (patch) cable will not work.

yes using crossover cable

Unless the rechid Wizard bridged the connections again.

Has the network got the same Workgroup name, but different Computer names?
