Interconnect problems between XP/SP2 and 98SE

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?RnJhbmsgRA==?=, Feb 21, 2005.

  1. I have an XP machine, with Service Pack 2 installed, connected to a Belkin
    802.11g router by Ethernet cable and an older 98SE machine with a Belkin
    802.11g adapter card communicating wirelessly. I can get onto the Internet OK
    from both machines and the 98SE machine can map to the shared documents file
    on the XP machine.

    I can't get the XP machine to recognize that the 98SE is on the network. XP
    doesn't seem to have the "Map Network Drive" feature that the 98SE has. Both
    machines have file sharing enabled. The 98 machine is using Microsoft Family
    Logon enabled. The XP is using Microsoft Client for Networks. If I switch the
    98 to Client, I can "see" the XP, but can't access the folder.

    Any genii out there know what I'm doing wrong?
