I have two Win 7 computers successfully networked with a WInXP. All is well until suddenly the WinXP computer loses connection with the Win 7 computers. The only way I have found to fix this is to reboot the XP. Is there something I can do to keep the connection?

Thank you.

You need to first determine the problem. It could be that you need to update the network drivers for that network interface card. Check the operating system's event logs. There may be some errors or warnings logged indicating that there is a problem.

you do not say how you haver connected, if by cable see above but if by wifi it is quite p)ossible you are losing signal because of nearby electromag/ micro waves or other interference of a metallic nature!
