I'm using two 3com 3c905c-tx-m nic cards, a 25 foot cat 5e cable, on two win98 systems.
AMD Athlon 1.2G
LS120 - SCSI
DSL - USB
AMD Athlon 600M
LS120 - IDE
I followed step-by-step directions at http://www.wown1.com
and have both systems setup accordingly.
3com diagnostics for windows 98se says that the cards are working properly. Device manager says that the cards are working properly.
The cable is new from Radio shack.
Neither system will see the other system.
I believe it is a cable problem and will try that shortly but this is my first network and I am abit lost. did I buy the wrong cable, I mean does the 'e' on the end make a difference?
Can anyone help me please? What am I doing wrong here?
