Q: {RESOLVED}win98 ethernet

I have installed a home network. I have a 10/100 switch, 2 PCs with 3COM NICs.

I have installed "query application" this tells me that I have an IP Autoconfiguration Address, Subnet Mask & DHCP Server address all assigned. The light are lit on the switch.
So I guess the hardware is working.

My Win98 SE network setup is:
Client for Microsoft Networks
Microsoft Family Logon
3Com .... adapter NIC
Dial-Ip adapter
NetBEUI -> 3Com Etherlink PCI NIC
NetBEUI -> Dial-Up Adapter
TCP/IP -> 3Com Etherlink PCI NIC
TCP/IP -> Dial-Up Adapter
File and printer sharing for Microsoft Networks

Primary Network Logon is
Client for Microsoft Networks

I have set up sharing for hard drives.
I press OK for network logon.
Both PCs workgroups are the same name.

When I boot, the first time I access network neighborhood it says network is not available.
Later I can see the workgroups, but I can not see the other computer under the workgroup.

Anyone got any ideas please?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

"Yo Guys........."
Thanks for your continuing support- I DO appreciate it.
Now on to my latest query. I have AOL7 running on Win98, and can't figure out if my problem is AOL or windows related. Maybe you guys know.
While online, I would get bumped off every twenty minutes or so.
An AOL tech told me to delete my global files, which helped temporarilly. After a second Query the next tech told me this;
start RUN and type in MSCONFIG. Then, click off the LOAD startup
group items and then RESTART.
After this, I go into expert setup and delete the Modem. I'm supposed to update the modem drivers after this, but never got past Auto-Detect.
I did manage to get back on line briefly after reinstalling ver7, but then it bonks me and I'm right back where I started. The netmeet window in windows tells me I have no server. The device manager says my stuff is okey dokey, and I'm perplexed.
Sorry to ramble on so; feel free to ramble back with your thoughts.

right click on the device with a yellow!

from the menu choose
Click on the Details Tab
Under the Property - drop down
Select hardware ids
Right click and select all
Then right click again and select copy
Copy and paste that information here

You should see a code similar to this


please reply with the full code for your device(s)

The portion of the code highlighted in RED is the Vendor ID and the portion highlighted in GREEN is the Device ID. In this example:


Vendor ID = 8086
Device ID = 008A

Post back those two numbers make sure we know which is vendor ID and which is device ID

These codes can be looked up at this site http://www.pcidatabase.com/

I am a newy to networking. It is all a bit of mystery. I thought I mastered DOS then WIN31/95 and 98 when I came across networking and NT4 server.
1) My primary computer is a NT4 server with dual processor working in parrallele. The only purpose of this NT4 server is to use the full capacity of parrallele computing to crunch numbers and save information on CD BURNER RE-WRITER. M/board is N440BX with already incorporated INTEL ETHERNET 100Base-TX and 100base-T.
2) secondary computer is LAPTOP WIN98 with NETCOMM CARD MODEM 56 COMBO (Ethernet). The PCMCIA card has a connection for modem and a separate one for Ethernet.
3)ONLY my laptop is connected to the Internet.The connection through the modem works fine.
I want to ONLY connect to the Internet through my Laptop and send files to be saved to the NT4 server which has CDROM RE-writer.
4) the physicall connection is this flat ethernet cable from my LAPTOP NETCOMM CARD MODEM(ETHERNET as well) into the socket of the NT4 server.
5)I have tried but do not understand the big picture so I am getting totally confused.
I can set up a modem connection but NOT an Ethernet connection.
Please can you help. Cheers Guy

If you are doing a direct connection between the Laptop and the Desktop PC, and you are not using a hub, then the cable you are using needs to be a Cross-Over cable.

Go to a PC hardware store and I am sure they will be able to help you out.

Executive summary:

I want to add a win98 laptop to my network which consists of a desktop that receives a wireless signal from a router. The laptop would connect to this desktop with an ethernet cable.

Here is my detailed setup:

A) Internet comes in through the wall to a Shaw surfboard, then uplinks to a D-Link router (DI 524 - a bit old).

B)The router sends wireless signals flying across the apartment to my desktop
i)which has a wireless ring receiver thingie (http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii221/computer-camp/ASUS Wireless Antenna/oly3646.jpg)
ii)The router also connects directly to my girlfriend's computer via ethernet, but that's not important right now.

A) My desktop has two ethernet ports.
B) The desktop connects to a laptop running win98 (best for playing old games - at least the ones that don't run so well on DosBox)
i)The laptop has an IP when I use ipconfig to check what it sees. This IP is

A) When I look at the network, I can see my computer and my girlfriend's. I cannot see the win98 laptop.

I have a machine running windows 98 using a member server on network to access the internet.

They both have static IP addresses and the connection is fine for about 3 minutes. I can only get a connection if I ping the win98 machine from the server first, then the internet connection and the internal network work fine. For about 3 minutes. After this time the win98 machine can still browse and access every other machine on the network with the exception of the internet server. Drive mappings are no longer valid to the server either, and pinging the server returns a timeout message. I then go to the server and ping the win98 machine, go back to the win98 machine and everything works fine for another three minutes. I have other win98 machines on the network that are not doing this, this is the only one. What could be causing the server to be hiding from the win98 machine? Any suggestions....?


A:{Resolved} - losing connection win98 to NT server

Since other machines are not having trouble, I think it more likely that the problem is in the 98 machine, not the server.

Any chance you can try another NIC in there? I know it is seeing other machines ok, but it is such an odd problem that if you have a spare I think it would be worth trying.

Hello all:

After much reading....My friend and I have attempted to Network to PCs. Original PC is Compaq running Win98. Was connected to the Internet via Cable modem and worked fine. PC#2 just purchased used from employer, running Win98SE. Installed a NIC card in PC #2 since it came without. Connected both PCs to a Dlink DI-704P router. Both PCs can access the Internet no problems.

Trying to access each PC is where the problem is. When opening the Network Neighborhood Icon on PC#2 , it shows itself under the network. Does not show PC#1. On PC#1, PC#1 does not appear, but PC#2 appears in the network and you can browse the C drive we shared. Both computers are setup under the same workgroup. Under Network Properties on PC#2 it shows: Client for MS Networks, the Network Card, IPX/SPx, NetBeui, and TCP/IP. PC#1 has the same except it does not show IPX/SPX or NetBeui. We cannot share a folder or drive on PC#1 either, the Tab to select sharing does not appear.
Since this is all we can find different between the two-IPX/SPX or Netbeui are not on PC#1 , could this be our problem?

We appreciate any advice and help you can offer, and in the simplest terms if possible. It's quite obvious we know next to nothing about Networking!!!We will try to continue this 'attempt' this evening, hopefully with some instructions from the good people on this forum!

Thanks in advance.

My floppy drive is not showing up in Win2K. I can reboot to Win98 and it is there. So, I don't think it's hardware related. It used to work in Win2K, but now it's not. I have done several changes to this PC, but none that should affect the floppy drive. I changed some network settings, installed a new printer, installed a new video card. It could have stopped working before all that - I don't use it much. Let me know if anyone has seen this before in Win2K. It's probably some setting or something simple wrong.

I just got a new PC. HP Pavilion 8650c. It is an intel celeron 530mhz running Windows 95. I had a Logitech PageScan Color scanner running fine on my old Windows 95 machine. Now after I scan a page and click on "no more pages" I get an error message that an error occured in my application. I click ignore or close then then get an illegal operation error message.
I just downloaded the softare version 1.6 from Logitech. Their tech support pages say Windows 98 works with Imageware 3.0
When I called to upgrade to Imageware 3.0 I was told it was unavailable.
Any suggestions on what to do now?

A:{RESOLVED} Logitech PageScan Color not working Win98

Is that the program that does the actual scanning, or is that the image editing software? The actual scanning pretty much has to be done by the program that they wrote, but image editing and TWAIN acquiring can be done by lots of other programs. When you do a TWAIN acquire it will run the scanning program - so it has to be working.

If your scanner company isn't around anymore or doesn't offer any upgrades... well, there isn't much you can do.

There are some higher end applications, like Corel Draw, that have their own TWAIN source scanning in them, but they don't work with everything. My scanner (cheap Canon) doesn't work with it, for instance.

Just thought I'd share this for the record.

I have a cable router and a switch with win2k and win98 computers. For some time I wasn't able to access the internet with the win2k machines, although the win98 machines could connect to the internet.

The problem was also strange because the win2k machines could still access all the other computers on the LAN.

Simply turning the router off and back on did not solve the problem.

Solution: Shut down the computers, the switch, and the router. Then turn on the router, switch, and computers again... all in that order.

I actually have about 3 different questions, but I don't want to start a new thread for them all. I did a search and nothing seems to be very close to the answer I need. So here goes...

First, I'm talking about a network. 2 computers (laptop and desktop), 1 cable modem, 1 Linksys Wireless Router with 4-port switch. Laptop: Win98SE, P2 CPU, 64MB RAM, Linksys wireless NIC card, Outpost Firewall. Desktop: specs listed in signature, Norton Internet Securities Firewall. Mothers madien name:.........

1: Does the Linksys router come with a built-in firewall? If so, why did the driver disk that came with it have NIS on it? And if it does have a built-in firewall, how the heck do I set it up? Been to or whatever.... no help.

2: The firewall on the laptop is Outpost, the one on the Desktop is NIS. Both computers get on the 'net with no trouble, but I can't share any files when I have the firewall turned on on either of them. As long as I disable both firewalls, I can share every file I want to. Which, if you combine these two questions, brings us to....

3: How do I configure that dam router's firewall (if it has one) so that I can turn down the firewalls on the systems enough to share files? And how do I turn down those two dam firewalls so that once I get the Linksys built-in firewall figured out, I can turn them down enough to share files?

WAKE UP!!!!!

I recently got a replacement motherboard and rebuilt my computer, everything is working fine besides the fact that windows xp cannot load new drivers, when i booted up i realized my built in ethernet controller was not working, so i popped in the disk to install the drivers went thru the process, rebooted.

I am wondering if anyone has an opinion about the best way to remove windows 98 from my C drive and convert to windows 2000.

Here's the details.
I originally had win98 installed in my C drive and then installed win 2000 on my D drive. I now run in win2k solely and am running out of space on my C drive. I have also run into a few problems that look like they might be related to the dual boot configuration.

Anyway since I don't want, need, or use 98 I want to remove it and run solely with win 2k.

The options I am considering are:
- Remove win 2k from D drive, and then reinstall win 2k over 98 and reformat the C drive to be NTFS for better security etc. This looks messy and prone to error.
- Install win 2k over win 98 and reformat C drive without removing the D win 2k installation. Then reformat the D Drive to get rid of win2k. I would do this using the win2k 4 3.5 floppy installation disks and the win2k CD.

I realize I will need to reinstall all my current applications and drivers but I believe that is a fact of life when doing this type of thing.

Any suggestions as to which is better or what the best procedure is?

I have an ethernet cable run in my house. What I need to figure out is if there is such thing an ethernet switch that does not require a power source. (or something that can get this situation resolved)

Here is my situation:
I have a cable ran to my basement, and have a bedroom directly above the basement that needs an ethernet run. It is not possible for me to run a completely new cable from the original starting point, so I was somehow hoping to use the cable going to the basement, put a head on it, put it into a switch/hub/splitter and run a cable out of it to the room directly above, and use the other cable coming out to stay in the basement.

Is there something that can do this for me? Is there a better way to do so? What would you suggest? Thanks!

Been having issue for more than a year. When my provider (Charter cable with static ip) drops my internet connection I have to start "at the wall" meaning reboot cable modem then wireless router then reboot laptop to reconnect to internet. Takes 1/2 hour. Charter seems to be dropping internet more and more so this can happen once per week or sometimes every day or 3. Have narrowed it down to this. With internet working just fine. Can use wireless from phone to surf web. Can even enable wireless adapter on laptop and connect to internet via wireless. So internet is not the issue. I very seldom use wireless and instead use my ethernet connection. I keep wireless adapter disabled. Very simply, internet is working. I am using ethernet connection. All is good. Simply unplug ethernet cable from laptop then reconnect ethernet cable. I have no internet until I reboot my laptop. Reboot works fine but getting tired of having to do so every time Charter drops my internet. John

Hi there,

I wish to run internet on both the systems, for that I bought a USB-to-ETHERNET connector and an ethernet cable, so that I could connect USB end to the desktop and the other end (with ethernet cable) to my lappy, and could be able to share internet connection. The USB-to-ETHERNET connector came with an installation cd which I have installed already and I have setup the whole connection but unable to share the internet connection. May be there is some configuration problem or so.. Internet is running fine on desktop. Please help...

I used the CCleaner program last week to clean up my computer and after I re-booted my computer the "system32" window popped up. So everytime I restart my computer now that window pops up. How do I get rid of it and how do I keep it from happening again?

Thank You


A:system32 window resolved(RESOLVED)

Could you be more specific ? "system 32 window" doesn't really give us much.

On Win98 my CDRom is no longer recognized. Last week I lost Excel but I can't read the disk to install it. What do I do?

(Put this under the stupid but easy to answer.)

A:CD Rom Win98

When you say it's not recognized, where is it not recognized? Can you see it in the bios setup? Can you see any info or error messages regarding the cdrom while the computer is booting up? Does the cdrom appear in my computer?

Lost Excel?

Thanks in advance for any help or advice that can be provided. I want to format my hard drive on a PC using Win 98. I have some files I would like to save before I do this. I have a second machine that is provided by my employer for dialing into work and working on the network that uses Win NT. Both machines have Network cards and are connected to each other with the phone looking like cable. The NT machine already has network set ups for my employers network, such as I see the work domain this machine connects to in network properties.

I just want to connect the two, copy the files I want to keep onto the NT machine, rebuild the 98 machine and restore the files. I have spent hours trying to find help and haven't found anything about networking NT to 98. Any Tips on how to do this or where to look? What if any other information can I provide to help get accurate advice?

A:cant get dvd on win98!!!!

DVD problems

Which software do you have for burning? Win98 usually doesn't have problems installing DVD burning programmes. It should find your dvd burner automatically. Did you look in "device manager" to see what CDROMS are shown? You will have to emable DMA to burn anything but that is found in the CDROM properties.
We need more info to help past this point.
