    I have a 3 system network at home. 2 win98 and 1 WinMe. I have a DSL modem and Printer also. Everything is hooked together by an older simple Ethernet hub.

    All systems use the DSL to surf. No problems.

    My 2 win98 systems can access all the files on every system.

    My WinMe system balks at accessing the Win98 systems though.
    Network not accessible is the msg. I think.
    Happens if I use either Network Neiborhood of Windows Explores to browse the network.

    Its as if the file sharing portion of the network only works one way, fron the 98 units to the Me unit, and not the other way around.

    During all this the DSL works fine on all units. Never any problems

    Printing to the Networked printer works reasonably well but not perfect. Some refusals to print occasionally. But nothing I can put my finger on. Not a major issue for me.

    Any Suggestions?

    All drives and computers are shared and network properties seem fine on all units.
