N/work design/ping!!

By ameliapumo ·
I have set up a new network with Windows 2000 advanced server. Using a fast etherlink hub, I can connect to 3 ot of four machines (win98SE, XP and 200 professional) but the 4th(win 98SE) will not connect. It has a new network card in it, but the card works in other machines, and the settings are identical to the other win 98 machine. I can ping the machine from the server, but when I try the other way round, I get request timed out. I cannot understand!!

Are you sure you don't have the 4th machine hooked to an uplink port? Try switching ports on the hub with one of the working machines. Then see if you can ping both ways. If so, check the documentation for the hub. You may be able to disable the uplink to function as a normal port (w/o crossover).

Hope this helps.

Also check that the subnet mask is correct on each host. Mismatched masks sometimes give strange results like you're seeing...

Did you try a tracert command you see where the failing machine is trying to send its packets. It could be a host file or your IP settings.
