XP and 98 pc can't connect to each other
| "James" wrote in message
| I'm sure I've just overlooked something really daft, but the problem
| been having is that an XP and a 98 machine directly connected to each
| can't connect. I know the cable works, and I know that the cards work as
| of this has been tested. I also know that the config of the cards is
| because each card has had my broadband connection linked into it as a test
| which worked.
| When directly linked to each other, the 2 network cards don't even show
| the link light on the network cards. I've been tearing my hair out. Anyone
| got any ideas??

| Use a CAT 5 crossover cable, not the straight through version.
I'm having the same problem and I *do* have a cross over cable. (the lights
work and the cable is known to be good)
