A few week ago I posted this question,but the replys I got did not do me any good, I think that those who responded did not read my post well.
I was told to Set up an IP from my router and run through ASDL. I have no router just a Hub. I was also told to Uncheck Enable Network access using IEEE 802.1X , don't know what it's for ,but I did it and it did not fix a thing. So could some kind person please take another look at this setup and give me some thoughts as to what I need to do?
I have 3 systems, All run W98SE,Systems 1,2,3 . I just put WinXP Pro on #2 Dual Boot. I have Win98SE 1,2,and 3 networked through a hub with a printer on 3.
All works fine within 98SE, everyone can see and work togather, sharing printer and files I want them to.
As far as internet connection, I just have Dialup and as of now only use it through system #1 and have not even tried to make that work through any of the others, so that is not a factor at this time.
I then started XP Pro on #2, loged as Admin, Ran the Network Setup Wizard,all systems have the same Workgroup name( MAC ) and each system has it's own Computer name,(133,750,233)
I even made the floppy, ran it on the other 98 systems, restarted everone and #1 and #3 dont see #2 the XP system and XP will not see #1 and #3. I even went into the XP system and installed NetBEUI.Do I just need to set the 98 systems up with TCP/IP and forget NetBEUI? Also do I have to have ICS installed in order for this setup to work? (I only use internet/dialup modem on system #1 and was not going to with others) Plain english please,I don't know squat about TCP/IP, but it may be time to learn. Sorry if the right info has been given on the site somewere , but I have done a number of search's and not found the answer to what I have up and running,Thanks for any info or links, Q.
