Maybe it's just been a while since I've worked with a Win 98 system. . .
Here is the setup:
1 Dell Dimension running windows 98 SE
1 Dell Precision 380 running XP SP2.
I need to get these two computer to talk to each other over a network - no internet acces, no servers - Peer to Peer
Setup the Dimension with:
IP : 192.168.10.13, 255.255.255.0, 192.168.10.1, DNS 192.168.10.1
Setup the 380 with:
IP: 192.168.10.10, 255.255.255.0, 192.168.10.1, DNS 192.168.10.1
The address 192.168.10.1 does not exist.
I cannot get the two computers to ping each other.
Both plugged in a Netgear FS108 eight port switch - both get link lights, both nics pass internal diags.
I thought that this should be it for a simple closed manually setup IP network?
Also the options to run NetBIOS over IP on win98 is greyed out.
Help please. . .
