    I'm currently sharing my internet connection to an old Performa 6400 running OS 9.1 (it won't let me upgrade to 9.2! :( ) Anyhow, the thing is whenever I put my other computer (the one that's sharing the connection) to sleep and then wake it back up, the Performa doesn't recognize the connection anymore, same thing happens if I restart the computer. The only way to fix this is to restart the Performa; then it recognizes the network connection. Is there any way of setting it up so it can recognize the connection on the fly? Thanks!

    you might want to open the tcp/ip control panel, turn it on manual, close it and save it, then reopen it and set it back to dhcp, close and save.... this should flush out the prefs I think
