Networking W2K & W98

By addy.co ·
Have 2 W98se pc that can browse network OK. The W2k pro pc cannot see any network. All network communicates OK. Can ping all OK. Internet connection is good via cable modem. At times have managed to get the W2k pc to browse untill it is next shutdown or crashes,the mapped drives etc are then not available. Had this problem before upgrading to Netgear FR314 Firewall Router so dont think this is problem. Think problem is W2K.Have checked settings but cant see where I am going wrong.Any assistancewould be appreciated. Please help

Try this: in the w2k machine open Windows Explorer. Type "\\<computername>" (no quotes) into the address bar. If you can get to the remote pc that way then try installing the netbeui protocol on each machine. Many people say it isn't needed but it has cleared up any connection issue I have ever come across involving different operating systems in a peer-to-peer environment.

If you cannot get to the remote pc by doing the above then you have a communication issue. Check and make sure that all of the pc's are in the same workgroup and have similar ip addresses.
