I really hope someone can help me. I'm trying to get my 2 pcs to internet share. Both systems have win98SE installed on them, and i have made the stronger one the host. Now for some reason i've done everything and double checked everything 10 times now, (and mind you, i have done this before on 2 other computers with dial up connection and that worked fine). I now have cable connection, and for some reason this is what i get when i've installed everything.
- When i do a winipcfg on the host and get the IP and put it in the client to ping the host i get REQUEST TIMED OUT.
- In the client computer when i do a winipcfg it shows on top where the host name is THE NAME OF MY CLIENT COMPUTER
- However i have installed file sharing and HAVE NO PROBLEM seeing each other's files on each computer!
- The client cannot access web pages or connect to any online game.
(ultima Online if anyone is curious to know what game i tested and EverQuest)
PLEASE anyone, any ideas or suggestions on troubleshooting this please don't hold back, i'd be very much appreciated.
Would love to get both these computers online without going through ##### and BACK!
