Networking Problem, Setting up "Home Networking Wizard" with Windows XP

Networking Problem, Setting up "Home Networking Wizard" with Windows XP

Host Machine is XP Home Edition with satellite internet connected to USB, a
USB hub is running off of this machine with 3 clients. Client A (laptop) has
Windows ME, Client B has 98 SE and C has 98. Client A can see the host, the
host can see client A and I have successfully set up internet connection
sharing on client A. Clients B and C cannot see the host and the host cannot
see them, however they can see each other.

The Workgroup for all machines is: MSWORKGROUP, all computer names are
different. Ran the "Network Setup Disk" for all 3 clients, clients B and C
I've had no success with. For the Host computer, with the "Network Setup
Wizard" I've selected the option "This computer connects to the network
directly through a network hub, other computers on my network connect
through this hub". For all, clients, I've selected the same option, no go,
tired the second option, no go. Should I try the third option "no internet
connection on the network" and set up the internet connection manually?

The hard drives for all machines are shared and internet connection is
shared running off of the host. Checked the Device Manager in Safe Mode for
B and C clients, no dupes for network adapters, in regular mode, the network
adapters have no conflicts IE: no red X, yellow ! in devman, (no conflicts
at all for any devices) network adapters are enabled, cleaned the startup
menu and rebooted, no go. Tried running XP Pro on client B and setting up
"Home Network Wizard" again. No go!

Can anybody give me an idea as to what the heck I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance

Home network "specified network name no longer available"
I have a win98SE desktop system and Win2K laptop. I have a Netgear wireless router and Netgear wireless card in the laptop. I can browse folders on the desktop. Last week, I created 2 folders on the desktop hd from the laptop. One folder is accessible. The other says "specified network name no longer available" when I try to browse it. I can open the folder from the desktop system. I created a new folder on the desktop system and can see the files in it. I still can't access it from the laptop. The folder has about 8 files totalling 150 MB, both smaller than other folders I can o...

configuring "named" to provide DNS for Windows home network clients?
I configured named successfully on my Linux box because I use Verizon DSL, and their DNS servers can take almost a full minute to respond to a single request during peak hours. So now the machine it's running on is much, much faster for internet use. I understand that named is a caching nameserver but where is the cache stored? In RAM or the hard drive? And how do I get my wife's Windoze machine to use my Linux box as her primary DNS server? I added the IP address of my Linux machine to the top her Win2K DNS server list but I don't know how to tell from a windows si...

removing a wireless network from "remembered" networks
Greetings all! I hope this is a quick, and easy question. My Powerbook remembers my work wireless network. Unfortunatly, right now it isn't working. It gets an IP address, and it shows data passing to and from it, but you can't ping anything, nor access anything. I've assigned it a unique IP address (I'm the network admin) but it still don't talk. I'm new to Macs, and this is the only one I've got to experiment with. I simply want to delete the information associated with that one wireless network, without interfering with the saved information for the two ...

Networking RISC PC to Windows XP Network
Can anyone help me with the simplest step by step simple word instructions to enable me to network my Acorn RISC PC running RISCOS 4.02 to a Windows XP network. I want to transfer files between both machines. I would also like to connect my Acorn thru this network to my Broadband Internet. On the RISC PC I have SmbServer 0.07 installed but not set up along with LanMan98. Is it possible to do all these things and can a rather slow person configure the machines to work?

Is it possible to create "network conneciton" on windows system?
Hello, one of my PC is window system, and in "control panel -> Network Connections", I can see some network connections such as PPPOE or VPN which I created by click "create a new connection". My question is, is it possible to create a new connection by using Python script? which means I do not want to use Window UI (via "control panel"), if it is possible, I can save so many time to create various network connection when I want to do testing in the lab. Thanks very much. Evan Evan wrote: > Hello, > > one of my PC is window system, and in "c...
