2 networks - one PCMCIA card?
dow Dec-04-00 01:22 PM
I want to set up a peer to peer network with a desktop and a notebook. The desktop has a network card connected to Bell HSE network, and I will install a second card for the new network.
The notebook has a PCMCIA card that is currently set up for a LAN at the office. I'm not sure what the network at the office is.

Can I use the same card for the network at home, or will I have to install a second card to accomodate this?
Will the notebook automatically recognise which network is being set up, or is it not that bright.

I will be using Win98 on both machines.

I know very little about networking, and was happy in my ignoarance.

Thanks,

Dow.

i guess your network at work is a domain so u'r notbook has to log on the the domain.
what os are u running on your notebook, if u are NT workstation make u'r computer joing a workgroup, by selecting workgroup in the identification tab, i have done this at work so then next time u are asked to log on u will have tow options logon to domain or logon the localmachine(which will be the computers name)

Check out Netselect at http://members.home.net/gbenton/software/NetSelect/. I have looked briefly at it, but have not had time to really try it out. If someone has experience with the software, please share your experience. Larry
