I had set up Win98 SE ICS on my two AMD K6/MVP3 chipset puters (host has Linksys LNE100TX and NC100 NIC's, client has NC100 NIC) several months ago and ICS and file/printer sharing worked fine. I recently bought a new 40 GB ATA 100 hard drive for my host puter and did a clean install of a new Win98 SE that I bought with the new drive. I also installed the VIA miniport & AGP update in Windows.
I did all the same steps that I did in the previous installation for the network (Client for MS Networks, TCP/IP & NetBEUI binding to the NIC's, File & Printer sharing for MS networks, etc) in the host (also tried without the NetBEUI binding), but I am unable to get the two puters to see each other in the network. They can only see themselves. Doing a search for the other computer just turns up a blank. Ditto with refreshing screens, logging out & then in to MS networking. Just for the heck of it, I installed ICS and was surprised to find that it works fine/fast in the client puter.
I did not reinstall the network in the client because I did not think it should matter.
And I can plop my old hard drive back into the host and the network as well as ICS work fine.
Would appreciate any suggestions.
