Win XP

Dear friends,

In my network, I have 10 units of PC running on Win98SE and 10 units of PC running on Win XP Pro.

The problem is, on Win 98SE PCs, I can double click on network neighbourhood and alll the PCs on the network will appear almost instantly. However, if I do this on Win XP Pro machines, it would need to take a while, sometimes quite a while before all the PCs appear on the screen.

Any idea why and how do I rectify this problem please? Many thanks!

Appreciate any fast feedback.

I have a similiar problem, (network of 5) where the computers would show sometimes and not shiw others. I setup a WINS server, hoping to possibly remedy the problem but its no go. Still have yet to find a solution.

Do you think it has anything to do with the "Master Browser" feature? I mean .. if I remember correctly, Win XP's method of handling network operations and Win 98SE is quite different right?

I am not sure if setting only 1 PC to be the Master Browser instead of all would make any difference?

Pls do advise if you find out anything .. many thanks ! :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
