Home Networking Problems.
Posted on 2003-03-07
Hello friends, I am new to this forum. I have a problem with my home network and really need some help with it.
FIRST: I have 4 computers all networked together (wired). 2 have advanced servers 2000 on them, 1 has Linux/Win98 and another one is a Laptop with WinXP home edition.
SECOND: All of the computers are conected to a Linksys router. I also have a dsl connection through Verizon (if it matters).
PROBLEM: My problem is simple, for some reason the Linux/Win98 & XP computers always prompt me for a password/user name, which I never entered at first place. So bascially without the password, I cant open up the disk drives on the other PC's. However through the win2000 I can do all of that and there is no password being asked. Computers see themselves through the network neighborhood, it just wants the logins, which I have no clue on what to enter.
Also, when I try to add a network printer to the XP & Linux/Win98 PC's it also prompts me to enter some sort of a password.
Please help, what do I do?
