Problems with LAN with different O.S.

By ferucio ·
I have a LAN with Windows 2000, and I have connected a P.C. with Win98, in this network. My P.C. with Win 98 “is seeing” the network, but the rest of P.C. with Windows 2000, does’t. What can I do?
I'm waiting for an answer.

First thing is your network design

Of course, breaking down the problem into peices will be a big help.

1. What is your Network design? Was it Workgroup or Domain based.

-If your answer is Workgroup, try to check your Workgroup name. Sometimes we mislook changing the Workgroupname of the client. Check this it will certainly help.
-If Domain based, check if the client PC is a member of the domain by checking the Domain name under the Network properties.

Tip:
Ping other computers if it replies check the workgroup nameand as part of troubleshooting enable only the TCP/IP protocol.

the problem is solved, the cause was a poor instalation of win98. I have installed minimal variant of windows 98, and this was. But this also can be a solution for one which want to be invisible in a network of win 2000. Isn't funny?
