I've just about tried everything. My current home network setup is Computers -> Hub -> Router -> Internet.
Now I want to be able to share all my files across my network. I have 4 machines. 3 Are windows 98 and the fourth is Xp Pro.
The problem I'm having is I can't get the Win98 machines to show up in network neighborhood. Although on the 98 machines you can see the xp machine fine with no problem. I've been doing a lot of reading online and nothing so far's been able to help me figure out why I can't see my 98 machines.
One article suggested I setup both machines logged in as the same username. That didn't work.
Another suggested I use NWLinkg/IPX/SPX. I installed that rebooted and that didn't work.
I've got my network firewall turned off.
I've got netbios over tcp/ip enabled. (No Change)
I've tried disabling Use Simple File Sharing (No Change)
The xp Pro machine is a laptop 2.8ghz.
