Networking

By jchabtraining ·
I have a windows XP Pro and a Win98SE. They are connected by a hub, which is how they connect to the internet, with a cable modem, w/dynamic IP addresses. The internet connection works fine. My problem is my network. They don't see each other. I used network setup in XP and used the XP disk to set up the Win98 Computer. I ran the scan in network troubleshooting on the xp computer and got these messages: [0000000 Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection FAILED

Can anyone tell me what to do to fix this. Thanks.

Checklist:

1. Client for Microsoft Networking, File and Printer Sharing installed, all machines;
2. All machines have identical Workgroup names, and different machine names;
3. Under TCP/IP properties:
. Set all machines to obtain an IP address automaticly.
. Click the Advanced button, DNS tab, "Enable Netbios over TCP/IP" and disable use LMHOSTS.
4. Make all the users of computer A users of Computer B & C & D, and similarly for all machines repeat the process.
5. Share something: disk, folder, printer, something on both computers. All computers then will have the same list of username and passwords.
6. Remove firewalls, especially the native XP ICS firewall.
7. Every user logs on with a username and password. No blank or empty passwords, no hitting the Esc key or hitting Cancel at startup.

DNS (Domain Name System) caching is used to resolve hostnames for faster access. The problem with this feature is that failed DNS lookups also get cached.
To change so that it will not cache failed DNS lookups...
1. Flush the DNS cache manually
? Go to the Command Prompt
? Enter ipconfig /flushdns

The only thing on your list that I had not done was #4, but doing it didn't help. Thanks anyway. Can you help me with the message I got?

having the lan connection firewalled in XP will interfere with file shareing. right-click the network connection, pick properties/advanced. how about zonealarm or other firewall? try static ip addresses. you won't see win98 box until you set up share on it...
