View Full Version : networking

24-10-2001, 06:10 AM
In the October edition of the PC World magazine, there is a reference to networking problems under the heading
'peer to peer pressure' on page 105. The last paragraph
'A scenario for windows 9x machines is at help.com/cat/1/106/hto/3311/3.html.'
This sounds as if it may be able to help with a problem I have at our senior net club, but I cannot find the site.
Can anyone please tell me the correct URL to get to this page?
Thank you, Allan

Hi Allan

When I entered the above URL with WWW in front, it redirected to this C-Net page, which looked like it may have links of interest


The article also mentions the microsoft support articles - have you tried these?

Or, as mentioned, leave a note as to what problems you are having and I am sure someone can help.

Thanks Gary and Tweak'e.
I do not have a problem at the moment but,
now and again, the network goes down for no reason.
I know that a laptop is sometimes connected to our system and when I read this article about Windows 2000 taking over the network settings, I thought this may be happening. I was hoping to find this page about windows 9x so I will know what to do next time we lose the network.
I was also directed to the same page at cnet when I typed this url but it does not seem to mention this subject. I was wondering if Brian Livingstone wrote the article and may be able to help.
