internet sharing problems!

  g00ner 14:07 26 Nov 2003

I have networked 3 pc's, one xp, one 2000 and one win98se. My 2000 machine has my ADSL connection and my XP machine shares the internet connection with it no problem.
I have tried to get the 98se machine to access the internet, but am having no joy!!!
I have set in IE tools to use lan settings but it still doesnt work!!!
Am i missing something???
Any help would be great! Thankyou.

Have you made sure that all three PC's are using the same protocol's. That is to say, XP & 2000 use TCP/IP but I think 98 uses IPX/SPX as well. Install this on the XP & 2000 machines & see if that helps. This is the only way I could get a 2000 machine to talk to a 98 machine on my network. All three machines should run the identical protocol's Etc.
