** Network having problem after upgrade to Pentium **

Ok, this is the situation. As you see, I have two computers
in the study room. It's side by side. We (my brother and
I) use to transfer files thought direct cable until my
father bought two network adapters and a hub. Then we
stared to transfer files using the Network. But then, one
of the computer had been upgraded to Pentium. After the
upgrading, the Network refuse to work. The problem is the
Network adapter refuse to 'speak'. As you've known,
the hub has two LED, one for link and one for activities.
As you 'search' or try to connect to a computer, the
activities LED should be flashing but the Pentium's
activities LED just flash once or none at all when I try
to log into the other computer. This problem happens
on both DOS and Win95 base program. If you'd been
through this problem, please help. Thank you.

p/s : For your information:

I'm using NE-2000, Ethernet

I'm using LANtasti for DOS and for Win95.

I've swaped both the cable and the adapter but
the problem still unsolve.

When I try to log into the Pentium, the other computer's
activities LED flash a couple time and then the Pentium's
flash only once. After that, the other computer display
an error message.

It's a Pentium (the speed is more than 100), PCI bus
and EISA. 16Mb RAM. Built-in disk-drive controller
with Primary and Secondary Hardisk support. Two
hardisk, C and D connected to the Primary controller
and a CD-ROM (x8) to the secondary controller.
SB 16 sound card. Acer MPEG card. S3 PCI video card.
One 1.44 disk drive.

Eh, what does this have to do with Linux ?

You'd be better posting this into the comp.sys.ibm.pc.hardware.networking
group...

Nevermind.

Given the above list of installed adapter cards, I'd suggest to
look for conflicting addresses/IRQ lines. And try to use a different
slot - perhaps the slot the card is installed in doesn't work.
