    My local network is down (never happened before) & I'm lost!

    Mac Mini running Snow Leopard is my main unit. Tiger is on another Mini & Panther is on a MDD G4.

    They're all tied together with a wired cable/dsl modem & have worked flawlessly for years.

    Suddenly, I can no longer access any unit from the other. I can still switch from one 'puter to another but that's all. Internet access is fine. Some of the messages I get are
    “There was a problem connecting to the server ‘Computer Name’. The server may not exist or it is unavailable at this time. Check the server name or IP address, check your network connection, and try again.” or
    "Connection failed
    The server "xxx/xxx/x/xxx" may not exist or it is unavailable at this time. Check the server name or IP address, check your network connection, and then try again." or
    Using ftp, I get "You entered an invalid username or password. Please try again.

    Things I've tried:
    Using ftp in addition to the usual afp.
    I've pinged my router & it's ok.
    I've run permissions repair; cleared PRAM; done restarts; logouts & back in;
    total shut downs & back up; hard reset of router afterward - all to no avail.
    Dunno what happened or why & sure don't know how to resolve this issue.

    Problem solved. Moderator, please delete this post. Thanks to all involved!
