    Win2000, Local Area Connection Properties

    (Prologue; because of my wife's sudden "Christmas clean the house" whim, I had to move some of the dust collecting computers, including disconnect them from the network etc...)

    After reconnecting one of the computers to the switch, it couldn't find the dhcp server (well, couldn't find any other machine...)
    The only change was that I used another cable than before

    Solution:
    Changed Link Speed & Duplex from Auto to 10Mbps/Half Duplex and the connection was working again
    Can someone explain why?
    (Different type of cable => different speed properties? )

    You shouldn't have to do anything, sometimes when you shut a machine off and move things around(taking and putting computers on a different network or sometimes the same) it removes themselves from the network.. and sometimes it takes a few minutes to find themselves again. If they don't try mapping them directly. (\\computername\c$)

    I would change the settings back to 'Auto'

    Good luck

    No luck

    Changed back to Auto, waited a few minutes, restarted etc => No connection
    Or, to be correct, no communication

    Haven't tried a static IP, of course...
