Win98 - XP Network
Posted on 2002-07-08
We have at our business, seven computers all running Win 98SE.They are all connected via 10T coaxial cable using BNC connections to the NICs. We also have a Canon copier center which is hooked into the network via a hub. All the computers share a DSL modem through a Linksys router which is connected to the network via the hub.
All the computers work fine and each can see and access all of the other computers on the network as well as any shared printers.
Today we hooked a new Toshiba laptop running WIN-XP home OS into the hub. It immediately recognized all of the computers on the network, with the exception of one. Why can all of the other computers see the Toshiba and inturn it can see all but one. All of the Win98Se computers are using the same network settings.
Is this a limitation of WINXP?
Is there a way to set up the network so that the Toshiba can see all of the computers?
Any advice or suggestions would be helpful.
