Windows ME networking problems

By valiant ·
I have a three computer network, hooked together using a DLink router and running on Windows ME, so all three computers can access the internet on an ADSL line. Using the networking wizzard, I have set up the network. They all have different names and the same workgroup. Two of them can browse the network, one cannot. All of them can get on the internet through TCPIP connection. On the one that wont browse the network, I can find the other computers by doing the search feature, but the computers do not show up in the network screen. I have file and printer sharing enabled. I can copy files from the one that dosnt show up to the other computers, and the other computers find the one that cant browse the network. Whats wromg with the one thatwont browse?

Do use have the Microsoft NetBEUI protocol installed on all three computers? Because you do not have a "server" in your peer-to-peer network, you need a broadcast based protocol to see your internal computers. MS NetBEUI is missing from the computer that won't browse your network.

In my experiences Windows ME is a little quirky for networking. I know that doesn't help.

Why do you need to be able to browse? everything that matters seems OK, have you tried to map a drive to a share on the computer?

When you first use network neiborhood, it shows you if the computers are talking properly, and it is easier to find a fike off of the other computers, instead having to do a search each time you want access to the other machine
