Have 1 tower running XP, 256 megs ram etc.
1 laptop running 98SE, 256 megs ram, etc.
Initially the two were networked peer-to-peer and shared a dialup Internet account. Everything worked FINE with the Internet sharing (except slowly).
DSL became available.
Got DSL, got a hub, and networked the two together. Now everything is not fine.
On the desktop with XP everything is as should be. The problem is with the laptop or how the host computer interfaces with it. I can access the host computer and all of its files. However, when accessing the Internet I can only access some web sites. For instance I cannot get to www.weather.com
and many others. I can get to most of the sites that I want to but not all. If I access the web directly through the hub and not through internet sharing everything works as it should. I have the firewall on the XP unit turned off. This is driving me crazy. Any help is appreciated.
