      and just an adendum this morning.......

      McAfee sets up the setting to "Enable" on re-boot so I lost access again.
      Just right clicking on the "M" logo in the task bar brought up the menu where you > Personal Firewall > Disable / Enable as you desire.

      I noticed how the software had done an update to "Privacy Settings" once the computer had been on-line for a few minutes after days of outages due to the problem.

      Will look into it more over the weekend, but there is one solution for anyone else with a similar problem.

      Regards,
      Ian.

      Morning Ian, can I presume your IP conflict is now sorted? Also, have you turned off the DHCP server or reduced the DHCP scope, and finally, have you noticed any performance improvements at all?

      Hi LNB,

      Yes done all that, and certainly able to access from all three machines

      Speed is about the same at 7.6Meg, but stability seems better, so I will monitor S/N over the weekend and see how it goes.

      Fingers crossed......but I've been here before....stable, then something else happens within a week!

      Now I have put in a second request for an ammended password, so I can access the portal and set up home based e-mails. Good job my main e-mail is on a server system accessed over the net.


      All the best,
      Ian.
