when first booting up. Allow all the pc to connect and find the DHCP server (sharing PC). Sometimes it takes a few minutes.

All the PC's are either ON or OFF, only the server is on at all times, but even after 20+ minutes after boot up, the computer still gives that error! it is not a big deal... Im just sick off geting that.....

jmc74: Like I posted eariler, I've got the same problem too. Also having simular problem w/Outlook Express error that says it "doesn't work with my current service". Of course, as with IE5, I try it again and it's ok. Called my ISP, no help yet.

Agree with you, it's just a pain in the A$$.

Monday, I'm going to opt for the $35 & call microsoft tech support. I'll post the outcome (the $$ is worth it, I get goooood info from those turkeys).
