Network cable unplugged / media disconnected

By wbgg ·
Im having trouble connecting a 2nd pc to the network, here at work.

i have a windows 2000 PC with Novell client ip/ipx(i think) connected to the only data outlet in the wall. So i found a old hub and plugged the win2000 pc into a lan port and plugged a cable from the outlet to the uplink port.

this all works fine. the win2000 pc is connected to the network.

Now, when i connect the 2nd winXp pc Novell client ip only to another lan port it will kick off the win2000 pc. I cannot get them both on the network.

I've tried setting the network cards to 100MB full etc (auto was default on both), but im not too sure what could be causing this. Some help would be great.
