    Ok here's my situation. I've got a cable modem run to a SMC wireless barricade run to a nice hand-me-down 3Com 24-port 10/100 switch. 3 computers plugged in to the switch currently, nobody being wireless yet (one thing at a time).

    Laptop running 98se, desktop running 98se, desktop running XP Home. All 3 can see the internet fine, all 3 optaining IPs via DHCP from the router no problem. Drives shared on all 3 PCs as full access. All in same workgroup. XP machine can see the other 2 in the "list others in workgroup" function, but I get "Access denied" errors when attempting to open them. Both 98 machines see each other, can map to each other, all as it should be. 98 machines can't see the XP box. Seems like a permissions problem somewhere, somehow with the XP side, but I'm having trouble tracking it down.

    Can anyone shed some light?

    Try this:

    on the XP machine, Run gpedit.msc...

    Should get the screen down below...

    Two setting you will want to change.. The top one (Access this computer from the network...) and the one i've got selected.. In the top one, add the Guest account to the list, and remove it from other one (deny access...)

    Then see if you can access a share...


    Another thing to try, even though it's really crap, is to try the NetBIOS protocol.. though it sucks...

    And CAT6 is almost finalised in standard (up to Draft 13 I think? :?: ) so it will be here very soon - already some businesses where I live are rolling out CAT6 installations to remain futureproof :)

    Hello guys, I am confused....I had a network with 2 pc's but I had to order another Ip address from my ISP to make it work using a Linksys 4 port Switch/router....(sold the second pc and cancled it)

    The way mentioned in the Guide says you can change them to anything I like?

    Let say I got my pc with cable connection... and in the guide it would be called "Server". Do I leave the Server pc's IP alone since it needs it to connect to the web and make up one for the Client?


    What I want to be able to do is share files, printers and Internet from my main pc.

    The second pc is just p133 that I use to run 98 for some of my projects that dont run well with XP

    XP pro on the main box and 98se on the second box

    From my limited knowledge on this, if you are using a switch / router, then the IP address you obtained from your ISP should have gone to the router port which connects you to the outside world. The other side of the router should have an address in the same subnet as the rest of your network. You then set the router's internal address as the default gateway on the two machines, so they can access the internet.

    Hope that makes sense, and I hope I'm not leading you astray here.. if I'm wrong, someone else should be able to tell you...

    I just setup my first network and i cant get my second computer to connect to the online servers for quake 3 or starcraft through the gateway computer. I also cant make a direct conection with AIM.

    The gateway is running XP pro and the second one is running 98. To get the second one to connect to the internet I used a proxy program (from analogX). I'm prettty sure all of the settings are correct, and im not having any other problems. Any help would be appreciated.

    i have been told repeatedly by retailers that the HOME version of XP is NOT NETWORKABLE - hence such problems occur ^^

    correct me if i'm wrong please, so i can inform the networks that they only need XP Home not Pro

    XP Home can be networked but has very limited capabilities so if ya networking XP Pro is the way to go. :smokin:

    Windows XP Home supports peer-to-peer networking but not domain based stuff :(
