I have recently networked my w98se with my new xp but now receive enter network password at each startup, I can cancel and carry on but it's irritating can anyone help get rid of it I have never entered a password .
I only get the password request when I log on via My Network Places. So I normally log on with Internet Explorer with no problem.
However I am having trouble finding a firewall which will let me log on from my xp machine through the wireless networked 98 ISP. I think this might be because Xp has a firewall built in. How do you manage?
Good evening stingray, another option for you is to install Tweak UI, available with the power toys download click here
This gives you an option to have Tweak UI automatically log you into the network at startup. Just a quick word of caution, the link above is for the power toys download, but these were written for win95 and some of them have undesirable effects in 98. Tweak UI is perfectly ok though, so I suggest if you wish to try this route, just install that.
Hi people thanks for the advice but still got the problem,don't know if it's relevent but if I click ok to the password screen it searches for a while and then comes back with "No domain sever was available to validate your password.You may not be able access some network resources".Going to try tweakui will keep you posted, thanks again. stingray
