Network always needs "repair"

    I run a second XP system that I fire up only weekly in order to
    receive back up files. Every time I do so, however, neither
    computer (they are joined by a local router, which also connects
    to a DSL modem) can see the home network. It's not until I run
    Repair on the network in the back up computer that everything's
    fine again.

    Is there anything I can do to avoid this remedial step each time?

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Have you updated all your drivers?
