I'm setting up a home network between a custom built win xp machine and an old Gateway win 98 machine. I've connected the two with a linksys router to the cable modem, and I tried using the winxp network wizard to make a floppy to automatically configure the win 98 machine.
Turns out that the win xp machine can see itself on the network, but not the 98, and can access the internet.
The win 98 machine can see itself on the network, cannot see the xp machine OR acces the internet.
I'm wondering if this is a specific to Gateway problem? If I need to alter the IP address of the 98 machine? Maybe part of it is due to a mac address problem with the cable modem, being that it was originally simply connected to the win xp machine.
I'm really wracking my brains on this one.
Any help would be awesome, even if it's something blindingly obvious.
