Hey all
I need a little help
I formated an ol pc with win98se ...128 Ram and a 10 gig HD
Trying my best to get it on my small home network and for the life of me it just wont connect.

I have been over and over this thing to the point of thinking it would make a good victim for the hydraulic press I have in the garage!!!...lol
Anyway I installed a netgear 311 nic card and configured the network as I always do with netbeui and all ( I use ICS with a 5 port hub by the way) and all I get is page not displayed and all I see on the net is itself.
I have tried 4 different nic cards that I have and get the same result...I am obviously missing something here but what is the question? Im not a novis at this and always thought I was fairly good at this but this one has really got me scratchin the bald head quite a bit......lol

thanks for any help
tired and frustrated!!!!

Howdy grybeard22...

First off I'm not good with ICS, but the only thing I can think of at the moment, is make sure the workgroup names are the same...

LOL sometimes I wish that too...

Can you ping other pc's by name and IP address ?

Also can you ping 127.0.0.1 from the problem pc ?

HMMM...

Interesting 127.0.0.1 is the local loop back of the card, have you tried to move the card to a different slot on the motherboard, so it will grab a different IRQ ?

I would uninstall networking and reinstall it all again firstly.

What about firewall issues?
