    I have finally set up my home network. I have sucessfully connected my new
    desktop computer, my laptop computer, and my old desktop computer. I can
    access the internet on all three computers. I have file sharing and I can
    print from all three computers off the same printer. I am having one minor
    annoying problem. My network seems to shutdown after a short period of time
    and I have to reboot the computers to make it work properly again. I can
    access the internet on all three computers but I can't use file sharing. I am
    still very unsure about network maintenance and I am afraid to make too many
    setting adjustments for fear that I might mess up the works. I am learning as
    much about networks as I currently have time for. In the meantime, does this
    sound like a familar problem that I might be able to rectify without much
    difficulty? Any help is appreciated. The reply I got to my first request
    helped a lot as did reading the other posts. Thank you.

    Check that any 'power options' that you have set on PCs etc do not turn off
    HDDs or NICs.

    Are you using a Cable Modem + Switch or a Router / Modem Como...whatever it
    is check that there are any timeouts set on this or these items.
