networked PCs no longer networked RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 2 PCs networked thru a router.   One runs Vista the other XP.   Until last week everything was fine as far as sharing printers and files.  Then all of a sudden they don't recognize each other and on the network map of the Vista PC there is a switch inserted between the router and the the PCs.  NO settings have been changed and and all settings are set for sharing.  Help---need toget these PCs sharing again.
