Windows XP & Win98SE Home Networking Problem
Posted on 2002-05-29
I am using a Linksys Cable Router for Cable Modem Sharing and for my home network. The problem is, ever since installing the router, I can't get my 2 pc's networked. One is running Windows XP and the other Win98SE.
Both PC's connect to the internet through the router just fine.
Any idea what the issue is and how to fix it?
The Microsoft Site states:
The problem may occur if your hardware router has a built-in firewall that has closed ports.
To resolve this issue, open the appropriate ports.
What ports are they talking about? Is this really the cause?
