I am trying to network a Win2K machine with a Win98se machine
My Win2k machine uses a USB cable to a DLINK DSB650TX USB 10/100 Ethernet Adapter to originally connect to my Moterola Cable Modem. I unplugged the CAT5 from my modem and plugged it to a 4 port wired broadband router, and then connected the cat 5 from my DLINK converter, and I still have internet access.
I then connected a Win98se machine (with a NetGear NIC) to the router as well.
I thought that would give me internet access on the Win98 machine and a lan between the two, but neither seems to have worked.
Both are in the same workgroup with different names. Win98 is HELPINGT and Win2k is singleton.
Clicking on Network Neightborhood on Win98 I see singleton (but not helpingt) but I dont see any devices on singleton (the Win2k machine does have the HDs shared)
Clicking on My Network Places on Win2k shows singleton, with all devices, but it does not see helpingt
A friend that networked XP to Win98 said XP made a floppy he had to run on the Win98, but I dont see anything in Win2k to make any floppy to be run on the Win98 machine
Any ideas what I need to do to get a lan between the two machines
