Good questions. Next time it happens I'll check those. And yes, "dropped" does mean to anywhere. I have two other machines on my desk that it cannot see. They all go through the same switch to get to the router. I didn't check both, but I had no trouble getting out to the Internet with one of them. -- Regards, Dick Steffens _______________________________________________ PLUG mailing list PLUG@lists.pdxlinux.org http://lists.pdxlinux.org/mailman/listinfo/plug
