    I am having difficulty networking my WIN98 and WIN2000 computers. I am able to share the internet connection but have not been able to share files. According to my instruction from lynksys, I need to have NetBeui and IPx/SPx Compatible Protocol installed. The WIN98 is setup that way, but I cannot find them when configuring the properties of the connection on the WIN2000. You should be able to install them. When I got to my local area connection, click properties, and try install the two, I get the following error: "Could not add the requested component. The error is: The specified path does not contain any applicable device INFs."

    Where do I go from here?

    Thanks,

    I think I may have narrowed the problem down to my firewall. I use ZoneAlarm and am trying to figure out how to add a subnet. How do I find out the IP address and subnet mask? I'll have to do this to both computers.

    I figure it out. I found the IP addresses listed right in front of me on the Zone Alarm page. Still, I'm not sure how I would have found them any other way. Any tips?
