My computer is a client:

1GBit Ethernet card "NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller" ethernet
The host computer:
AMD Athlon 64 3400+, 2048mb ram, xp home sp2
SiS 900-Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter
NetGear Dual Speed Hub DS104 (http://www.netgear.com/products/details/DS104.php
-4 sockets (3 are used)
the host is plugged into the first socket, mine is in the second and the other is in the third. the forth is not used. the host computer has a usb adsl broadband modem.
the wires are ethernet and were custom made to the right length at our local computer shop (ingeniously named "The Computer Shop") and they have worked before. i've checked the wires for breaks and bends, but they all look fine. i've even tried different ones.
also, since starting this thread:
-the two clients can't access the internet or shared files or printers on the host, but they can access each other
-the host cannot browse the clients and now says limited or no connectivity.
i hope this is enough information
