CAN'T CONNECT PEER-TO-PEER NETWORK

Window 98 on Pavilion 6350 over a Negear switch won't talk to a Windows 2000 Pro PC. From Network Neighborhood and for each PC I can see the PC's workgroup and shares but not the others. Using NetBui.

Re: CAN'T CONNECT PEER-TO-PEER NETWORK

Alright, bad Netgear Switch, model number FS605. Learned that these are really HUBS! For they are switches that provide no MAC address. I consider this a Marketing Falsehood myself.

Went back to cross over cables and can now ping either PC but network neighborhood fails. Ideas? Enable Netbios over TCP/IP?
