In the "computers near me" I can see the pc itself listed & also my laptop that I am networked to, but when I click on the laptop it come up with somthing like "path could not be found".
PC win2k
Laptop win98
& on top of that the laptop can't find any computers.

I guess I'm having a comunication problem!!!

Oh by the way this is a direct cable connection.

Direct Cable Connection...

Well, you're not looking at your connections for a starters by going through there, rather looking at the computers within the same Workgroup.

Try clicking 'View All connections' in Control Panel :-)

Do you mean network & dial up connection, cause I can't see view all connections.

hmm........not too sure about direct cable connection as I've never used it but with a standard crossover network connection I'd definitely suggest that unless you are wanting to share the internet conection too then you use 'NETBUEI' as the protocol as it's VERY easy to use
