A couple of problems with my Linksys 10/100 router (I think, anyway). All 3 PCs on the network have identical network cards that so far are running without a problem.

1) The uplink to the internet is through the router's WAN port connected to the cable modem. I'm getting some major lag problems on all computers on the network. Not just constant 200+ pings...about half the time, the pings run below 50-60, but there's periods of HORRIBLE ping spikes of 15000+ (that's not a typo) no matter what server I'm connected to/web site I'm surfing. No one else in the neighborhood with cable is having these problems.

2) This particular computer I'm posting from can't see any other PCs on the network, but can still access the internet. I've tried rebooting all 3 computers in every order possible, resetting the router, shifting around ports, and it's still not working.

This computer is running Win98SE, the other two are on WinME. Any ideas?

What are your network settings on each PC....right click network neighborhood and select properties. Don't use any unnecessary protocols and only TCP/IP if that's all you need. Make sure the workgroup name is the same and the computer name is differnt on each. Have you gone into the router and checked the TCP/IP settings? Make sure your routers address is set as the gateway address on all your PC's too.

If you are sharing resources on those machines, make sure that you have IPX running for the MS Client to see the shared resources. Also, make sure the workgroup listed in the network properties on those machines are the same.
