This happens immediately you pull the network cable out of the NIC socket..... After struggling a bit with this I installed as a second 'NIC' the Microsoft Loopback adapter. This is not dependent on the network cable being plugged in and forces TCP/IP to be loaded all the time. After that I have had no problem using CVSNT with my laptop's name in the connect string (:ntserver:computername:/repository).
