Network drops out

Fedora core 6. Internet and email still work fine. Network with windows XP computer worked fine until updates were installed, I dont know which update caused the trouble. It takes a long time before the icon Windows Network appears and clicking it has no result anymore. What could be the cause?

The icon "Windows Network" in windows xp? Have you verified the "smb" service is running?
Run from terminal:
/sbin/chkconfig --list | grep smb | awk '{print $1,$7}'

If it says off, then run as ROOT user "/sbin/chkconfig --level 5 smb on" without double quotes. Then run as ROOT user "/sbin/service smb start"

EDIT: you could also do this from a gui via KMENU->System->Service Management. You could also launch that gui from terminal by "system-config-services"
