Hello

ups I posted this question in win 98 I think this is the correct forum :rolleyes:

I have a LAN problem, wel all start when i have to change my HD (the last died) I install win98 with no problem but when I want to see the others PC's in the LAN they don't appear I have to use a explorer an type the IP of the others PC's, also when I want to find the others PC's searching by name win98 dosen't find them but from others PC I find the PC that I formated

I check the configuration of the others PC's and thy are the same anybody know why it happend?


The PC is a IBM pl300 with the LAN card incorporated could it be the problem?
before my HD died it works fine

Thanks


ps: I recibed a response from win98 it says that I have to put the netbeui protocol but before works well without it

If it works well, what's the problem? I believe it was me that suggested NETBEUI, and that's because it frequently solves network browsing issues when other measures fail.

You can just use TCP/IP and it'll work just fine. Make sure all the computers are on the same subnet. If their IP info is setup statically, then check those settings. I'm assuming you just have them going through a Switch or a Hub using regular straight-through cabeling. Peer to Peer Network. Please write back if that doesn't work.

I check the TCP/IP they are iqual to the others PC's

I have a router that is connected to internet, the IP's, the dns and the gateway are fine, also they are in the same subred (I called it Ddm)

Is everything on the network "workgroup". What happens when you look at the stats from using IPCONFIG \ALL from a command prompt? Just curious and trying to help. I would stick with TCP / IP if you didn't have any other networking problems before you changed the hard drive before you switch protocols to NETBEUI

Did you share at least one folder?
Did you remember to enable "File and printer sharing for MS Networks"and "Client for MS Networks”. Remember to create a user name and password and make sure to log on to the MS Network?

I have had a LAN for 5 years and multiple O/S's.
I know tcp/ip should work by itself, but for shear slimplicity, NetBEUI works beautifully. Share Hard drives and printers and never have a problem.

After I make sure that NETBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled on all the computers, and that I can ping all around, my next step to solving browsing issues is NETBEUI. Why you might ask? Well, simple, because it works! :D

"when I want to find the others PC's searching by name win98 dosen't find them but from others PC I find the PC that I formated" from where, my network places or from \\sharename?

Are you able to \\computerName\sharename both ways?

If not what error message do you get?

Do you have any firewall installed? IF yes uninstall it and try to access the shares via \\\computerName\sharename

Also wich protocols and services are installed on the working computers and on the one that does not work properly?
