How to get sharing from both computers?
1freespirit Nov-17-01 07:50 PM

I have to different lan adapters (1)being Realtec RTL8139 -running windows 2000 pro.

and the other system having DFE-530TX. running windows 98SE.

Now I can share the internet connection from my windows 2000 system.

Question is there anyway to let the windows 98Se system share my internet connection?

If I activate internet sharing from my windows 2000 it comes up "conflict error with IP address".

No biggy but would be nice to resolve if possible.

Also how can one tell if there permmissions are set up correctly on the wondows2000 pro. My network seems to run alright but I am not sure if I have it set up for security or if just anyone can possibly hack into my network.

Thank You,

Change the TCP/IP on the Windows 98SE computer to obtain its IP address automatically. Run winipcfg to release the IP address until ICS is installed. After ICS is installed, run it again and renew athe address. Larry

Move the network adapter to another PCI slot. Disable all unused motherboard resources (e.g., USB, COM ports). Check Start, Settings, Control Panel, System, Device Manager, and look for network adapter resource conflicts (exclamation marks) and run the conflict troubleshooter. Remove and reinstall everything network on the SE machine. See out FAQs... Larry
