Hi Pam, Have you checked the event viewer logs in adminstistrative tools in xp? I solved a network problem I had from there. Some of the errors pointed to my network problem, and once I figured out what they were saying, I was able to solve it.

I have a Win2k box acting as server, with a win98 | client and a winXP client. Not too long ago I took the Win98 box offline | because of some trouble it is having, totally unrelated to this problem. I | had an older nic in the Win2k box that only allowed 10 Mbps speed. It ran | perfectly, ICS worked just fine, only problem was speed. I installed a new | nic, no problem... so I thought. If I leave the XP box set to obtain IP | automatically, which is how it was set with the old nic on the server, then | it can't find the server. But if I set the IP manually then they both can | see each other, I can share all files, access the printer, etc., but when | set to manual the ICS doesn't work. I'm sure it is something I overlooked | because I am NOT a network person, but I went as far as my knowledge can go | to find out what I didn't set correctly. | Any suggestions/guidance definitely appreciated. | | Pam | | | | Pam, | | Ask away - If I don't know - someone at work will defnitly know and I can | ask him, he's my boss - LOL | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | TTFN – Vic | | | | | | Does anyone have experience networking using Win2k and the server? I have | a question but not going to go into it if no one is able to help. Win 2k | handles networking very different than Win 98 does. | | Pam | | | To unsubscribe from this list send an email to | pcductape-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field | OR by logging into the Web interface. | To unsubscribe from this list send an email to pcductape-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Web interface.
