Is the Workgroup on the 98 machine same as W98 machine?
Is the user account setup on the 98 machine the same as the w2k machine? A new PWL may be required.
Is Client for Microsoft Networks installed on the 98 machine?

In addition to the above advice about Workgroup name consistancy, I would add the NetBEUI protocol as well, which will smooth the exchange of files between W2K and W98.

Yes, Client for microsoft networks is installed. The wired Win2k boxes can see the Win98SE box. I will try later on adding netBEUI. Both the win98SE box and win2k boxes use private ip and same gateway. I'm really puzzled why the wireless win2k can't view. Theoretically having the same protocols installed with Client for Microsoft Network should enable all boxes to see each other. they got the same workgroup too.
