Networking XP/Win98

By kbmcruiser ·
While using a linksys router (WRT54G v5), my XP machine can see (and ping) my Win98 pc but cannot see XP w/Win98. I have access to internet w/ both machines, and read many instances similar to mine but I've exhausted my knowledge here. From what I've read, it sounds like a common problem. But upon swapping out the modem and between my local phone co. and IP suggesting I reset my router, I lost my network connection. Workgroup names checked, firewalls down, reinstalled NIC drivers... Any help at this point would be appreciated

well, i have also stuck with the same problem, but while reading to this article i think i have got the answer.. but currently i enable to do any r & d, cuz i'm on leave right now.. but if u do it can tell me, it would be kinf help...

so here it goes...

do u know something about the network setup disk that u have to run, ie when u finish installing drivers it ask whether u want to create a "network setup disk"?? well this is only the answer to this problem, run that network setup disk...

but the problem is; i dont which which "network setup" that u have to run...

i think u make a network setup disk, at winxp and install it on win98 and vice-versa..
