Win98 LAN Network Setup
Posted on 1998-12-12
I have 2 win98 PCs each with an Intel 10/100Mb NIC, each connected to a 3Com 8-port TPO 10/100Mb EtherLink Hub. I have assigned 10.1.1.1, 10.1.1.2 with 10.1.1.1 as the gateway. I'm trying to use TCP/IP between them, to simply share a printer, then to play games later. I've configured IPX and NetBUI on both. I can see my workgroup on each machine, and the machine itself and can ping itself, but not the other PC. However, I cannot see the other machine on either one. Hub shows a link lites, with an Alert (!) lit. What am I missing in this setup, or, what have I done wrong? Thanks in advance.
