Hi I've got a problem with my network and I have checked other posts in this forum for similar problems but none of them seem to help. Anyway, here's the thing: I've got two computers, one has XP on it, the other one 98. They both use the same kind of network card: both a Realtek RTL8193, probably the most basic network card there is. They both are part of the workgroup Mallet studios (don't ask ¬_¬). The IP of the XP is 10.0.0.1 and of the 98 is 10.0.0.2. They both have subnetmask 255.255.255.0, so basically, i have all things that a network requires, yet on the XP it says that the networkcable is unplugged and the 98 only recognises it self as part of the network. I have checked the cable, but i don't think that's it, since it worked fine when the xp was still a 98 and according to the laws of logic (ok, so this is windows we're talking about, still...) it should still work after the upgrade. Does anyone know a sollution for my problem? thanx!
