I have a windows 2000 server running DHCP with a number of windows 2000 clients and they can connect to the DHCP server fine.
before i reformatted the windows 2000 server a little while ago i had windows 98se clients as well, but after i reformatted it i had no 98se clients, the time has come now where i need again a couple of windows 98se machines.
ive just installed windows98se on two computers and nether can connect to my network (other computers or the DHCP server).
i know the network cards are fine and the drivers are installed, this is really annyoing as i had windows98 working fine before with the DHCP server, but i also had this problem a little while ago with two windows98 laptops that would NOT connect to anything either.
The settings on the windows98 pc's are as i believe they sould be : client for microsoft networks, [the adaptor], IPX/SPZ, NetBEUI, TCP/IP and File and printer sharing.
The TCP/IP Properties are DHCP enabled, use DHCP server for WINS, disable DNS.
file shareing is enabled and the primary netowork logon is client for microsft networks.
im also wondering if it could be that im missing a setting on the DHCP server that windows98 needs but windows2000 dosent.
Can anybody help me get the windows98 machines connect to the network and DHCP server?
