hi ive got a xp and a win 98se which go to a hub with straight through patch cables.
ive got a blueyonder external modem that also goes to the hub with the same sort of cable....
i followed the xp wizard and all seems fine on the xp set up, still able to suff and get mail etc, but on the win 98se i cant seem to get the net!
any ideas because im stuck....
i think it might be the ip address on the 98 or something, what can i do?
cheers
william

i dont have one just the installed xp one
how do i get rid of that?
i also looked at the site you linked me to....
it shows the modem going into the main computer, but on mine ive got all the cables going into the hub as ive only got one nic card in each comp
does this make any difference
cheers

this is getting me down a bit....
i went for a crossover cable and didnt have a second nic card, the guy said get a hub and plug them all into that, it saves opening up the machine, so i got straight through cable and a hub and it dosent work....
so now i got and get another nic card and im left with a hub i dont need!
will it not work with a second nic card?
cheers
