not see workgroup
Posted on 2006-06-12
I recently intalled XP Pro over Home, not a clean install. When I tried to network, I could not see the other computers, nor ping to them. They see each other, including a win 98 that hold files that needs to be mapped to. I made sure they were in the right workgroup and enabled netbios over TCP/IP. I installed IPX and finnally got this computer to see itself in Network Places, but not the others. I was told that Home version of XP still has files in the XP version that is keeping it from networking. How do I get this computer to see the others, especially the win 98 machine?
