Problem networking windows xp and windows 2000 machines
Posted on 2003-11-17
I have to computers at home. One win2k pro, one win xp pro. They can't see each other. I used the connection wizard in win xp but is still doesn't work. Here is how it's wired up:
winxp box: one network card going to linksys hub, one network card attached to cable modem.
win2k box: one card connected to linksys hub.
When I had win2k on both machines I didn't have any problems. I tried manually setting the cards to the same setting as before but it didnt' work. The connection wizard trys to create a network bridge. Would appreciate if someone could tell me what the tcp settings should be on all cards or perhaps I have another problem.
