Vista 32-bit / Windows 7 32-bit (Dual-Boot)
Where has my network gone?

I have 2 laptops and 1 desktop pc connected to my home network. The laptops are set to access a shared folder on the desktop pc. All are on the same workgroup.

The problem is that today, for no apparent reason, the network has 'disappeared'...none of the pc's can see each other, and I cannot ping between computers.

I have not consciously changed any settings, nor applied any updates. All was working OK last time I tried, but today it seems to have all fallen apart. I have tried rebooting each machine, but no joy.

The laptops cannect wirelessly to my Netgear DG834GT router, whilst the desktop is connected by ethernet. No machine is experiencing any problems connecting to the router (or the internet).

Any ideas what could have happened, or what I could do next to narrow down what the problem might be?
