I have a Windows 2000 Pro computer with two NICs, one connected to DSL, the other to my home network hub.The DSL connection is configured as shared.
A second computer with Win98SE is connected to the hub and is configured as a client.

If the Win98 computer is on when I boot the Win2000 machine, all works very well and I get nice connection sharing.

However, if I boot the Win2000 machine first and only then the win98 client, no connection is established.

How do I make the DHCP server scan the network for new connections once the computer is running?

Many thanks in advance

Your Win98 client should automaticly reveive an 192.168.0.x address from the Windows 2000 machine, if you set the 98 machine to 'automaticly obtain ip'.

So if you start the 2000 machine, then you start your 98 machine, you don't get an ip-address??

Try "ipconfig" or "winipcfg" on your client (in a dos box) to see what your ip-configuration is on the client.
