I have installed a 7 PC peer-to-peer W98se network for a client. Everything works fine on the day of set up, but I kept getting calls saying "someone" can't see network.
We cured the problem for a while by turning the PCs on in the same order each day - this 1st PC becoming the Master Browser. All was ok until 2 people bought XP laptops. I installed them successfully on the network, but when they are not connected, the network can't be browsed. It takes several restarts to see anything in network neighbourhood (pinging is always ok).
Is there any way to make a W98 PC permanently the Master Browser, and switch it off in XP?
Is this even the problem?
Any suggestions welcomed
