Hi, I have a PC with XP and a PC with 98 on. The network cards on both pc's are working fine. The problem is the Two will not talk to eath other (they did at one stage) When I go into local network (pc with XP on)it shows only shared files on that pc. When I turn on the PC with Win98 on, the network password box pops up, when I go into the network neighborhood (win98)it's empty and now when I power down the PC (win98) it hangs for about for about a minute and then the windows is shutting down screen appears and stays on for about 3-4 minutes before switching off. When I turn the PC with XP on and the desktop appears it hangs for about 2 minutes, the norton icon has a red cross on it then after 2 minutes the cross goes and the network connection icon appears. Neither of these PC's were like this till I used the network windows wizard. Any Ideas ?
