Ever since kid went to xp the lan doesn't work.

Machines

Mine running 2kpro
Wife's running 98
Kids with xp

All connected to linksys switch and to cable modem.

I can browse and transfer to wifes just fine.

Occasionally can see the kids in network neighborhood and actually access a shared folder, this is intermittant.

Generally it will crash a 98 machine and with 2k it just times out.

Can't figure it. xp firewall is disabled, he has permissions for my 2k and vice versa.


Went so far as to install netbeui on xp, still no go

Ideas anyone, anyone having a similiar problem with xp
Everything else on all machines works just great, internet, etc.
