I have just about given up trying to get my network to function.
My main desktop (server)runs Windows ME, and connects to another desktop running Windows ME via a crossover cable. (each computer having PCI ethernet cards installed.
I also have a D-link USB to ethernet device which connects to the server USB and to a laptop by ethernet cable.(laptop runs Windows XP).
After first running the networking wizard on the XP laptop, I install the network discs in the server and the slave PCs. The problem is that after much jiggling with parameters, I can network between the server and laptop, but cannot "see" the other computer.
When I first set the system up, everything except internet sharing worked.
Does anyone know how to return PCs back to the original default state so I can get things working again? I have tried various "helpful" websites on networking settings, but this is where the problems started.
