    to make a long story short I had internet connection sharing working on two comps, and the one that was connected to the cable modem got jacked up. On top of that my ISP just updated the system in the area adding to the confusion

    Linksys nic = connected to cable modem
    D-Link = connected to my hub
    netgear 8 port hub

    other computer connected to the hub as well

    so anyways, i take net connection sharing completely off my computer. I get my cable modem settings right on the linksys. Then i check out my network and it's not seeing my other comp. Both comps have file&print sharing connected, and both are in the same workgroup.

    i've tried everything i know(including checking all the connections), and the two computers just will not see each other.

    no place like the basics, usually thats where the problem usualy lies, seeing as your running 98 and using a hub I assume you've got your network protocols loaded. In your case you probably have to have Netbuei and TCP/IP. With Netbuei all the computers will see each other as long as they have a proper network path, Of course you mentioned a cable modem, many cable isp's require you use DHCP so do you have your machines set up for DHCP or are you using assigned address's? Good chance you inability to see each other lies in this area.
