    Win 98SE to Win XP Home

    Set up a wireless network through a SMC router, XP drives
    seen in Network Neighborhood of 98 machine. I can access
    the drives of the 98 machine from XP machine. I have all
    drives on both machines set for sharing.
    When I try to access the drives on the XP machine, I get
    an error message saying " 'XP drive name' is not
    accessable. Not enough memory is available. Ouit some
    programs." 98 machine has 184 megs RAM installed, with
    Performance tab showing 80% available. I can access the
    internet OK through the wireless router.

    Also cannot setup printer on XL machine from the 98
    machine, when I try to browse the XP macine's printers,
    none are shown even though I set two XP printers up to be
    shared.

    Searched a lot of knowledge base articles with no luck.
    HELP!!!

    Thanks in advance for any insights or advice.

  3. The problem is probably that an antivirus program has changed an
    obscure TCP/IP setting. Please see this Microsoft Knowledge Base
    article for a likely solution, specifying a value of 15 for
    IRPStackSize on the XP computer:

    Antivirus Software May Cause Event ID 2011

    Make sure that the printers' share names aren't longer than 12
    characters. If they are, 98 won't see them.
