    Default Network trouble

    I am trying to set up network with just two computers. At least this time I have managed to load the drivers for my laptop ethernet card.But still no good. When I go to find computer:limprist (on computer A)it just comes up with no computers were found.
    Computer A
    win98se
    Configuration>TCP/IP "the card">properties>IP address 192.168.0.1 subnet mask 255.255.255.0
    Identification:
    Computer name=Ptoastman
    Workgroup=rcatnet
    Computer description=p4

    Computer B
    win98se
    Configuration>TCP/IP "the card">properties>IP address 192.168.0.2 subnet mask 255.255.255.0
    Identification:
    Computer name=limprist
    Workgroup=rcatnet
    Computer description=compaq

    Wot kind of cable are you using? OK here is what you need. If you have a hub or router or switch board, use "Strait Wiring" ethenet cable. If you are only using one cable from one computer to another, you need a "Crossover" cable. What are you using?

    Yes that's what I'm using,just a crossover cable.
    The desk ntwk card is new & the laptop ethernet card is second hand. It would be good if I could some how check my hardware.

    Well, right click on My Computer and go "Manage" and look around for Device Manager" and look at "Network Adapters" or "Devices" and look at the satus of the card. Is Windows detecting what kinda of card it is?

    In device manager the ethernet card is listed with networkadapters but not with the pcmcia slots & then in other devices is a ! but that's probably somthing else.

    A ! means the card isn't working properly

    What do you want to share? folder/s or net access or both?


    If you want to share folder/s, file and printer sharing needs to be enabled as well (on both PC's).

    And then the folder/s in windows explorer need to be shared.

    If you want the networked PC for net access, enable ICS on the main PC (192.168.0.1)

    I will have a look at that.
    But I wish there was a way to diagnose wther hard ware is in good order before I drive myself made changing the settings.
    I get back after I have had a look
