    Hello,

    I am having the following problem between a Win98 PC and an XP Pro connected
    with wireless cards.
    The wireless part seems OK, signal is excellent on both sides.

    On the XP PC, using network neighbourhood, I can see the shared disks on the
    Win98, I can display a folder content, a subfolder content, but at the next
    subfolder, the explorer window hangs forever (at least 15 mn).
    At that time, I can see a big traffic going on the wireless cards.
    If I try to do an end task on the explorer winfow, it never responds.
    Very often everything dies on the XP PC, I have to do a hard reset.

    If I just use ftp file transfer from the same folders, everything works
    fine, no problem at all.

    I tried to disable Netbios over TCP/IP on XP, no change.
    This behavior is not systematic, sometimes I have no problem, sometimes I
    have to reboot the XP PC every time I try.

    Can anyone understand what is happening ?
    Thanks for helping

    bottom-posted:
    You should enable Netbios over TCP/IP on all workstations, BUT remove all
    other protocols. I believe what you are seeing is related to having
    multiple protocols. I used to have the same problem on XP, but it seems to
    have gone away with the removal of NetBEUI.

    Thanks for the tip,

    I do not have NetBEUI on my XP machine, .

    I have seen somewhere that all I need is TCP/IP and Netbios over TCP/IP, is
    that right ?
    If this is true, what is the use of "Clients for Microsoft network" and
    "File and printer sharing for Microsoft Networks" protocols ?

    Anyway, I will try to remove everything except TCP/IP and keep you informed.

    Regards,
