i saw my friend do this and i wanna do it too. i have a netgear router for my two comps. and i want them both to share my one 56k connection. the old one is on windows 95 and the new one is xp home. how can i get them to share the conention like my friend?
Just a guess ....
Most of these usits are set up via the web browser - set your IP settings to DHCP and set everything to auto (server assigned).
go into the command prompt : Start-run-cmd
type in ipconfig /renew and you should get new IP settings - normally look like:
Windows 95 has no problem seing windows XP shares as long as you log on to it with a valid users account - that is the same user as one that has been set up in XP.
This also applies to Win98/ Me / Win2K/ other XP boxes.
for the XP box to see the Win95 machine - make sure u have the File and Print sharing for microsoft added in the Network options and that you have a folder or drive shared.
