I've lost access to the rest of the computers in my network. I also, don't have access to my local
disks through the network... I know it's no big deal cause I have local access to my disks but
thing is that the problem repeats itself over the network. The same thing happens.

I see my network appear (MSHome)

I see the networked Computers (XP1, XP2 and XP3)

If I click on the resource of XP1, it shows the HDs and Printers

BUT, when I try to access those HDs and Printers, the computers just gives me
the hourglass forever. And same thing happens locally...

Is anyone else experiencing difficulties with your networked
Machines? Same setup works fine under W2K and ME but not under XP...

Any Ideas?

I have all the protocols loaded and the firewalls disabled...

You telling me that nobody else is networking between different XP boxes? Or it turns out that I'm the only one having problems with accessing the shared resources between XP boxes??

What exactly do you mean by ALL the protocols loaded/installed?

What I meant with the "ALL" protocols is that I was forced to load NetBEUI to see if this solved the question, but obviously it didn't.

The protocols running right now are:

Client for Microsoft Networks
File and Printer Sharing for MS Networks
QoS Packet Scheduler
NetBEUI
and TCP/IP

Also, for the record, I'm using Devils Own...

I also tried adding IPX/SPX, but the song remains the same...

Aargh!

Not sure what to suggest -
1 perhaps look at the advanced properties for your NIC's
2 remove everything related to the NIC's and start again
3 my favorite - start to reinstall XP and select the repair option

Gentlemen:

Thanks so much for your suppport, but there's no need to
bust our brains anymore...

I found the source of my troubles and it was a "ill
behaved application" the one to blame for my
connectivity problems...

Once I got rid of it, everything went back to normal...

Best Regards...
