Default Help setting up WinXP-Win98 network - 09-17-2006, 16:44 | posts: 6,795 | Location: Chilling

Ok, I am planning on using the WinXP machine as host for internet connection (cable dial-in), host machine has a nForce4 10/100 ethernet which is connected to cable and a ST Lab Realtek 8139d Fast Ethernet NIC 10/100.

Now the problem is that I am having WinXP Pro SP2 not recognize the NIC card, and when it does it shows the nice big yellow exclemation point next to it. I downloaded and installed the latest drivers, as well as testing the original ones on the floppy, nothing works. There seems to be no IRQ conflict, but if there is how do I fix it or know?

Now my second problem is that the Win98 PC is only written in a different language (Hebrew) which I cannot fully comprehend at the diffficulty level required for the technical stuff. So if someone could please show in screenshots, or find that, step by step instructions to set-up I would be in your debt forever. If someone could find the instructions for setting up a dial-in broadband shared connection as well on WinXP I would again be most grateful.
