Win 98 connecting to multiple networks

By wdauby1 ·
I am attempting to connect a laptop w/98 to (2) networks. One network is an NT with DHCP enable and DNS disabled. The other network is a cable modem network with a static IP with with DNS enabled. My goal is to be able to connect to both networks using (2) pcmcia cards.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

I'll use TCP/IP as an example, but this applies to whatever protocol(s) you're using. In network properties, go to the TCP/IP properties for the first adapter, then to the bindings tab. Bind it only to the network that you want to connect to. Then do the same for TCP/IP to the other adapter, except bind it to the other network. This should do what you want.

In win95/98 if you have 2 network cards, they
are displayed separatly in your network confoguration tab. Every network card has a dedicated e.g TCP/IP protocol, which means you can use different TCP/IP settings for
the two network cards.
E.g.:
TCP/IP (3Com EtherLink xxxxxxxx) 1st netcard
TCP/IP (IBM xxxxxxxxxx) 2nd netcard

But watch out for hardware confilcts!

1. Right-click on network neighborhood, then click on properties. Click the configuration tab, then go to the TCPIP settings for the PC card linked to the NT network. It should say TCP/IP -> (the card). Double-click on that line.

2. If there is no such line, you need to add the protocol. Click Add, then Protocol, then click Microsoft on the left and then TCP/IP on the right. You may need your W98 CD for some files. Then there should be a line in the above panel that links the TCP/IP protocol to the PC card for the NT network.

3. Click the Tab for IP Address, then click the button to Obtain an IP address automatically. This should enable DHCP for that card only.

4. Click the Tab for DNS configuration, then click the button that says Disable DNS. This should set that properly for the NT connection.

5. There should also be a line in the configuration tab that says TCP/IP -> (the cable modem). If not, do the Add Protocol thing listed above in step 2.

6. Put your IP numbers and DNS nu

The easiest way to deal with this problem is to create different hardware profiles. You can do that by going into System control panel. That how is my laptop configured. I have office profile with DHCP client, and my second profile is static IP formy ADSL at the house...

I don't know if this will help or not, but I had something similiar. I have a notebook running Win 98SE, all setup (IP addresses, domain name, etc.) connected to a Cable Modem to cable company. I connected it through a Hub and realized I needed a "cross-over" cable. Got that working. Then I connected up 2 desktop PCs also running Win 98 SE and they couldn't see the notebook but could see each other, and the notebook couldn't see them. I had just the TCP/IP protocols loaded on the desktops. On the notebook I had the TCP/IP and IPX/SPX protocols. After hiring someone to come over to straighten things out he ended up loading the IPX/SPX protocols on all the PCs and NetBEUI on all the PCs (The notebook didn't have NetBEUI so he loaded it). He said really what I have is two networks trying to talk to each other, and the desktops are talking over IPX along with the notebook, and the notebook is talking through the cable modem on TCP/IP to the internet and the NetBEUI is used to more or less allow the t
