Home Network

Question

I'm trying to set up a home network (with Interent Connection Sharing). The clients that I've just built using Win98SE (never seen the interent yet, nor have had ANY updates) loaded up fine. I'm using the default Windows Client for Microsoft Networks. It is working as it should, allowing me to do everything and recognizing itself in Network neighborhood.

This "server" computer, on the other hand, keeps giving me "WNetOpenEnum failed, result is 1222" when I right-click on network neighborhood and check system information. It does not recognize any network.

This computer has a modem in it (the client does not). It has also been treated to all the Windows Critical Updates.

I have Kazaalite++ on this machine, but have turned off file sharing. I'm also running Norton Systemworks on it.

I've gone through many different scenarios of NetBEUI and TCP/IP configurations trying to get this to go.

What am I doing wrong???

This question was answered on January 21, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

You don't say if you are using a hub or router to communicate to the client computer And you said that client computer have a modem and not a nic card Try installing a new nic card to the client computer, installing the same net protocol (NetBEUI or TCP/IP if you are using a router) that the servers have to the client computer, and remember you need a hub or a router.
