Error Messages:

Hi, I have three PC's networked in my home. All run XP Pro. It is an ethernet network using a D-Link 10/100 Fast Ethernet Switch.
All pc's have been assigned an IP address for the LAN. Machines numbered, (main PC with ADSL connection), (client) and (client). We have all machines connected and sharing files and printer. Drives mapped for all machines on each machine, and that works fine.
I use AnalogX Proxy for sharing the ADSL internet connection and that works fine as well.
We also use the network for LAN gaming and up until yesterday everything was working fine. All of a sudden, when running a game and creating a LAN game (e.g. Halflife, Day of Defeat)none of the PC's can see the "server" machine that has the LAN game running. This happens with all our games that have LAN capability.
Also I find that machine can't ping the other machines. I get "error 1", yet the other machines can ping can still access files on the other machines and they can access files on
The McAfee Personal Firewall is disabled while LAN gaming and so is antivirus software (just in case it is that).
Hope all this makes sense.
Can anyone help.
Cheers, Joe.
