Network connection hanging
Posted on 2001-06-14
I have a Win 98 desktop PC networked with two other 98 machines and a Win 95 machine using Peer to Peer networking. Occasionally this particular machine will hang while trying to access a mapped drive to the Win 95 machine. What I mean by hang is it will just sit there with an hourglass doing nothing. If I hit Alt + Ctl + Del, I can end the explorer task and successfully explore the mapped drive of one of the other Win 98 machines. If I try to explore Network Neighborhood, it will hang again. I can go to another Win 98 machine and successfully explore Network Neighborhood or a drive mapped to the Win 95 machine. The only way I have been able to fix the problem so far is to restart the computer.
Any ideas as to what is making this PC hang? It's a PII, Win98 SE with 6gig harddrive and 128 mb ram
