I run a network with 6 computers - 5 have you generic $15 NE200 cards,
one cas an AE-3 card, because the NE200s kept conflicting, and I needed
something with jumpers for that computer. I'm using BNC cable, about
5-10 yards of it total.
When they were running Win3.1, and thus using the DOS LANtastic drivers,
they worked perfectly. However they are used for Desktop Publishing, and
we have to upgrade to PageMaker 6.5, and thus Win95.
So, I installed 95, and left LANtastic 6.0 - although that didn't work
because the servers wouldn't work when the Win95 GUI was loaded. So I
decided to try out the built in Win95 file & printer sharing - but no
luck. All the computers could find themselves, but only themselves.
Exept the computer with the AE-3, which found all the computers, but
couldn't talk with any of them.
So, I figured, it works on LANtastic for DOS, why not for Win95? Got
7.0, installed it, and still no more luck.
Any clue why the network would work with DOS drivers, but not Win95
ones. I'm using standard NE2000. If the Artisoft card was giving me
problems, that would make more sense, but it seems to be the NE2000
All the cards are ISA and they're al 233 MMX Pentiums.
