I have a new problem on my hands. I recently purchased a new laptop computer. It is an HP Pavilion N5450. It uses Windows ME for and OS. I purchased it to replace an NEC laptop 6060. I had the NEC (Win 98SE OS) networked to my other computer at home a HP Pavilion Desktop which has windows ME OS.
My difficulty is that I can't get the two Pavilion computers to see each other in Network Places. I have set the network settings in the new Pavilion laptop identical to the NEC laptop. When I connect the NEC laptop to the HP Pavilion Desktop, the network works fine.
The only way I can get the pavilion laptop to see the desktop is to either use the search feature or map the drive.
Some help solving this problem would be sincerely appreciated.
My network settings I was using to connect the computers (and worked fine with the NEC / HP desktop are as follows:
Client for Microsoft networks (using windows logon)
TCP/IP lan adapter
TCP/IP dialup adapter
Netbeui lan adapter
File and Print sharing
