Can't Print or Map a Drive in WIN 98
Posted on 2004-12-01
I have a windows 98 user that cannot print or MAP a network drive, but he can
go on the WWW and send and recive E mail over the WWW.
I did an IPCONFIG and he had no IP Address, so I did a:
IPCONFIG/RENEW, and it gave him a list, 1-4 of Ethernet Adapters. In 3 and 4
were the following:
Our IP Adress Pool is: 192.168.x.x----X.X.X.X. Also those are Class B
addresses, they should not come up as a renewel of the IP address. After I do
the IPCONFIG/RENEW, and the address shows up, I reboot and the address is gone
from the Ethenet Adapter list in IPCONFIG.
When I Renewed his original address I got a MAC Address conflick, so I looked
around and found some inaccurracies of other IPs addresses on other users
workstations. Found an UNUSED IP Address to use; X.X.X.178
So I used the addrees after Pinging it and getting No Reply: xxx.xxx.x.178. I
did not get a Conflict message, but it still did not allow me to print, so I
enetered it in the Network control Panel Manually, and it still did not let me
print or see the network.
