Darn, I can't find a definitive fix for this problem, but I think it is being caused by a security setting somewhere. Are you getting a message warning you that your network shares are vulnerable to intrusion from the Internet when you connect? If so, that is causing the problem. Answer the prompt in away that does not disconnect the local network resources. Get a software or hardware software firewall if security of network resources is then of concern. Larry

Dear Vichop
First thing I need is what kind of cable are you using to connect the to systems with.

RJ-45 (LOOKS LIKE THICK PHONE LINE)
OR COAX (LOOKS LIKE TV-CABLE)?

NEXT IF USING RJ-45 ARE YOU USING A HUB ?
IF COAX ARE BOTH ENDS OF SYSTEM TERM W/BNC

I have exactly the same problem.
The 2 pc's are connected through a 3COM hub (4 ports) with twisted pair cables
The modem and adapter are an ISDN connection

Check the bindings in the Properties of the instance of TCP/IP protocol assigned to the network adapter in Start, Settings, Control Panel, Network. Is the File and printer sharing for Microsoft Networks box checked? It should be unchecked for adapters used to connect to the Internet and checked for those used for the local network. In cases where a single network adapter is used for the local network and the Internet and no firewall is installed, it should be unchecked to protect the local network from intrusion from the Internet; and the NetBEUI protocol should be installed for local network connectivity in addition to the TCP/IP protocol used for the Internet. IPX/SPX can be used instead of NetBEUI if IPX/SPX is needed for games, etc. Larry
