I have recently purchased a new computer, os windows xp and decided to network my old computer, os windows 98 se via a crossover cable.I now have nearly everything functional.Sharing files and printer etc. The windows xp computer acts as the gateway computer with which I can connect to the internet to virtually any site with little or no problems. however the second computer will only connect to a limited number of sites. I am using IE Explorer version 6 on both computers For those sites which don't connect the address bar generally remains clear while the status bar may have the message Web site found waiting for reply, Opening page, or Done. At any given time when such messages are obtained the sites in question can generally be readily accessed via the gateway computer Any ideas?
