I set up a network of two comps with win98 and win2000 pro. The problem is that comps don't see each other. Actually sometimes they do(until i don't reboot one of them) sometimes they don't. When they are visible to each other i try from win98 comp reach the internet through win2000 pro by ICS but i can't. By ping command i defined that internet server is found but it doesn't answer. It happened when i worked in MS Explorer and suddenly web pages stoped loading.

Also I would turn off any firewalls.

If you can not get this solved then post the
ipconfig /all from both machines.

Also get the latest NIC drivers and patches theu windowsupdate.com

I hope this helps !

When you say they don't see each other - are you referring to not seeing the other computer appear in My Network Places / Network Neighborhood. If that is the case - it is normal behavior. MNP / NN is populated by Browser service which takes up to 15 minutes to update.

As far as using ICS is concerned, I would think it is a separate issue. If you can post IPCONFIG /ALL output, as SysExpert suggests, it would help a lot.

What protocols are you running on each box?  Win98 reuquires Netbios(netbui) in order to be able to browse other machines on the network.  Make sure you have "enable netbios over tcp/ip" checked in your network configuration panel.  Also they must be in the same workgroup.
