Networking trouble... PWs and speed...
Posted on 2001-06-04
I am currently running one computer on Win2k and the other one on win ME. I am using the Linksys 4port DSL/Cable router. I have good cables because they are new.
When I am going to go browse through my network, It takes really long to load up and it locks up the window and stays at the hourglass pointer for a long time. I had to install NetBEUI in order to get my computer to actually be able to see the other computer on the network. The computer names are unique and they are on the same workgroup.
Also, when the computer from Win ME is trying to access my computer over the network, it asks it for a password. I have never specified a password for network and I have tried the password that I specified for windows and it still wont work, I tried a blank PW and it wouldnt work either.
I will be adding more points as I get them.
thanx for the help
