Networking & Shared internet - WinXP Win98
Audible07 Apr-09-02 05:39 PM
Here the brake down

PC #1
Name: HOST
Workgroup: HOME
Internet: DSL
Network cards: DLink and Realtek

PC #2
Workgroup: HOME
Internet: Through PC #1
OS: Win 98 1st ed.
Network card: NE2000 Compatible PCI

I ran the home network wizard and configured everything properly.
Then I used a diskette to put the wizard on, and ran it on the Win98 system. Rebooted both computers. Nothing. No internet, no visible shared folder in NetNeighbourhood.

I shared everything on both computers. For a while I thought it might be the card. So I set the card on the Win98 machine to the same as the WinXP card that is connected to the Win98 and I'd get a "IP Conflict" error. So I knew that the card works fine.

When set back to "Obtain IP automaticly", I ran WINIPCFG and pinged that ip from the WinXP pc. Nothing.

I'm really stumped!!!

Take a look at http://www.duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/win98se/intro.htm , I have a feeling your Client For Microsoft Networks as well as your file and printer sharing isn't enabled. Run though the configuration again and let us know what you find.

Nope. That's all good.

When I check the network adapter in Win98
It says Novell 2000. Does that matter?

It could. Win 9x will often erroneously assign a Novel compatible network adapter IRQ 3 when in fact it may be set to something else. Is the board Plug 'n Prey or is it set for a specific IRQ (http://duxcw.com/faq/network/combonic.htm). The Windows assigned IRQ can be changed manually in Windows for most of these boards. Larry
