Rant! but suggestions appreciated



I had to scan some documents to e-mail. As is usual I scan them into the PC in my office and then transfer them to my media server. Some how the shares had gotten messed up so I couldn't transfer the files. Easily fixed and all is good. EXCEPT. Now my laptop (which had NO PART in the aforementioned exercise) has decided that my entire network doesn't exist. I can see the Lappie from the network and can still access the 'net from said lappie. I can even see the printer if I type it's IP addy into a browser, but it don't show up in Network neighbourhood along with all my other 'puters.

I DID NOT change anything on the lappie, the printer, the router or the server. All had to do was turn off password protected sharing on the office PC. I've re-started the lappie, double checked all settings and even shut down the firewall and AV proggie. I DON'T WANT to perfrom a system re-load to fix this. AAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHH!
