NT and 2000 communication issues

NT and 2000 communication issues

I have four computers networked.  It seems that the win2K is losing its connection with the master (winNT) computer or the master (winNT) computer cannot talk to the slave (win2K).  Also in explorer from either the master or slave we are not able to see any of the other computers.  I tried several approaches to this problem:

1.  re-enable the computer browser on the winNT computer (master) - this did not fix it.

2.  Install both the NetWare IPX/SPX... and NetBIOS on the win2K puters only.  This seems to be working at this time.

What do you think??

Please address my pet hate, "a cable is loose, you lose your keys"
