    2 PCs (acctually a lot) connected thru hub. wXP has problems finding w98 ower the network. wXP can find it but verrrry slow (15-30sec) and this slows down everything (explorer, open/save dialogs, etc).
    w98 disk is mapped to wXP.
    only network protocol used is TCP/IP

    i had this same problem. i solved it by installing net beui on both 'puters.

    you can install it by going to add/remove programs and selecting it from the xp components (it'll prolly ask u for the xp disc).

    don't worry about win98, it has net beui installed by default. simply activate it in the same tab as tcp/ip settings, i think. you check a box next to net beui to activate it.

    after this, reboot both machines and walaa!

    I had the same problem. I also have Norton Internet Security installed on the XP box with a cable modem and 2 NICs. When I disabled the Norton Internet Security, the two found each other perfectly (<10 msec TTL). NetBUI isn't required. Try using the "Setup Home Network Wizard" from XP if you still can't figure it out. Also, the search the forums is probablly your best bet.

    That message is due to the fact that for the time being the admin's have disabled the search fuction while they try to figure out why they were having problems with the site. So with the search fuction disabled u will have to go looking on ur own or find a mod who can help. U could try this program Smartalec PC Accelerator XG.possible software solution
