I have a friend's old Pentium PC here that they want to upgrade to broadband and have it able to access other PCs on their home network.

I have set it up and can successfully get onto the Internet. But I can't get onto any of the other PCs on my network (or, I would imagine, their's).

There are some settings in the Network control panel I/O port address, Interrupt Number and Transceiver Type. Each of these has a dropdown list of options (about 10 of then each). I have tried a few combinations but it whichever one I try I cannot access any other PCs.

What am I doing wrong?? The fact that it can access the intertubes and not other PCs baffles me!

TIA

PS Running Windows NT 4.0.

What SP is on it? SP5?

This sound like the prob? (http://support.3com.com/infodeli/inotes/techtran/13c9a_5ea.htm)

Is it password protected?
