Problems connecting a win98(client) into

By ricadri ·
There are 7 machines (win98) and 1 server (NT) on this LAN. All 6 clients connect to server without major problems, except for 1, that I have no idea why it's not getting into network. What should I check/change to make this machine visible on the LAN and working properly ?

Try removing all networking components and adding them again.

In win98 system, right click on the network neighbourhood and select properties. In that
open files and print sharing enable both the options and restart. Before that from the server try to ping the win98 machine.

Q. What protocol are you using?

1. Check your hardware. Insure that your Network card is install properly with out errors.

Next, Check the cable, switch it with one that does work.

2. I have had this problem to before, it occasionally occurs during initial installation of several software programs and then installing a network card.

It is a this point that everything seems fine you reboot and then it doesn't work.

The way I did it was by not rebooting, but shuting the system down, wait a few minutes then power it back on. Then reinstall the Network card.

What protocols are you using..

Is the cable you are connecting to the machine good... Try another port / cable.

Why do you think it is not connecting to the lan... Can you see mapped drives / anything in network neighborhood...

If you areusing TCP/IP can you Ping any other machines..

If you are using only TCP/IP you will not see anything in network Neighbourhood..

Is the machine set to the same domain as the others. Is the network card working.. if you are using TCP/IP ping127.0.0.1 that is the local loop...

mail me for more ideas Mark@lionhart.net

Try checking the duplex setting under the network adapter properties, advanced tab. The setting may be incompatible with the switch or hub the PC is connected to.
