Networking wint WinMe

By FrenchFries290 ·
When I attempt to network two computers at home I receive two error messages. I am attempting to connect a PC running Windows Mellemimum and one running W2KPRO. The WinMe machine crashes with an error message referring to "vserver" and a memory location. The W2KPRO machine flashes an error message that states the "network cable is disconnected." I'm using a crossover cable to connect the two NIC's. I can ping both PC's from either machine. I'm certain my hardware is good. Also, I have re-imaged the WinMe PC with the same results. Has anyone had similar problems with WinMe? How did you fix it?

I recommend checking that cable again. It is very easy to make a mistake with those little RJ45 connectors. I found a good description of setting up a crossover network at

http://makeitsimple.com/how-to/simple.htm

I use a hub in my home network because they are cheap nowadays and I don't have to be smart enough to build a crossover cable (besides that I have three machines hooked up).

Hope this helps

In my situation, I found that I needed the following patch on the ME machine. (2729**.USAM) which can be found at Microsoft. You will also want to ensure that after adding the patch you disconnect the cable from the ME machine and restart it. Thenplug the cable back in.
You may need to run through the NETWORK WIZARD on the ME machine and make a setup disk to install on the 2000 machine.
