network of 2
XP pro [fresh install]
win98se [fresh install]
4 port ethernet switch to adsl modem
automatic assigning of ip on both
XP is visible in my network places on xp and network n/hood on 98se
98se is not visible in network places on xp and network n/hood on 98se
internet is working on 98se
both on the same network ie MSHome
can ping the switch and xp from 98se as well as any domain on the net
logging into win98 with client for microsoft networks using enter key
tried release and renew ip on 98se
tried fixed ip's on both [98se couldnt see internet or xp]
tried with file sharing on and off
ran nework wizard on xp & used network setup disk on 98se
ran network wizard on 98se
winipcfg on 98se and ipconfig on 98se
the ips and subnet were right
98se = 192.168.1.100
xp = 192.168.1.101
i have missed something basic but what??
Re: network help please :)
Do you have anything shared on the 98se machine ?
You must have stuffed that up, it shouldnt have changed that.
Most likely you dont have anything shared on the 98se machine.
XP shares some stuff by default, 98se doesnt.
If it isnt that, turn off any firewalls, with the adsl modem unplugged
from the line for safety, and see what happens in that config.
In spades if you're using zone alarm, you can get weird effects with that.
