I have a two computer network, using windows 98 2nd edition on both. My computer that is connected to the internet and my printer works well. It can print and connect to the internet. My internet connection is (Alcatel Speed Touch(tm) USB ADSL RFC1483). I can see both workgroups on both computers. My problem the other computer it sees the network printer but won't print. I can transfer files, but I can't connect to the internet.I set my printer to share. I pinged the host computer and my response was, destination host unreachable. I ran winipcfg and set my network adapter to the network card, on my main I set it to my internet network adapter. I am using a (NETGEAR FA311 Fast Ethernet PCI Adapter) on both computers. In device manager they both are working properly. I am using a D-Link 8-Port 10/100 Mb Hub. Is there anyone that could tell me what my problem is and how to solve it. Thank you.

Do you have the drivers installed on the client computer? You need the print drivers installed on both pcs. If so, try uninstalling-reinstalling the printer from the host and the client and redo.

Thank you JKennedy55,
I had not tried the uninstall and install, so I tried it and like everything I have tried on this project it failed. I hope there is someone that can help me before this thing drives me crazy.

Have you installed Internet Connection Sharing software? See http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/win98se_cab/intro.htm. The ICS client should ping 192.1168.0.1. See http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/net2pc/printer.htm for sharing the printer. http://duxcw.com/faq/ics/waysshare.htm may be of interest. Larry
