losing network browsing, authentication.

By rcb ·
I have a wxp pro dell optiplex 745 that is part of a domain authenicating to a w2003 server running active directory. This one client has been operating for 3 months no trouble. Several times a week she looses the ability to print to our network printers and is unable to view documents saved to a network share. When trying to view these docs she gets prompted to enter username and password as if she is no longer part of the domain. When her printing stops I try to add a printer and when searching the entire directory for the network printers none will show up but when searching only the domain the printers appear and then printing resumes normally without adding any printer. I have removed her pc from the domain and renamed it and readded it back to the domain. I have changed what port she connects to on our punchdown rack and have replaced her patch cables. Still the problen exists. No other issues like this happens to others users on our network.
