If you are on a fairly large shared network and the problem is that you sporadically can't get a connection through your server at all (a common problem) it's likely that the subnet masking is just fucked up; a lot of people have no clue when it comes to subnet masking. This would need to be addressed to the network administrator; this would be a network problem; not one with your local computer.

You could always run winipcfg to make sure you actually have an IP address.

Might be something else, too -- I've just seen this a lot.

Sounds like conflicting ips...
Or possibly your dns server setings are switching to some manual configuration and are wrong...hard to diagnose without a bit more info.
what are you running as your server ?
Are you running a server?
are you using DHCP ?
Wins?
What OS ?
You tried static ip's ?
What exactly is not working ?
Im assuming you have some kind of broadband connection and are sharing it with 4 computers ?

Dunno if this might be it, but for future reference anyways... If you access the internet with broadband, chances are you have some kind of modem that your main PC is hooked up to. If you start changing things around, you may want to unplug the cable modem and let it reset. Happened to me several times till I figured this out. Don't know if this will help or if Im missing the point, but good info anyways.
