    My Win ME compuer is having trouble networking with my other XP & XP Pro
    computers.
    PC Fast 10/100 ethernet card.
    I have run the XP networking wizard etc.
    If I leave it with these settings I can connect to the internet via
    router/broadband OK but none of the other computers are shown in network
    places.
    If I manually set the IP & Subnet I immediately see the other computers on
    the workgroup but now won't connect to the internet, shows usual error page
    and do you want to auto detect settings.

    It use to work & not done much since the last time it was working. Did
    install XP Pro on another computer.

    With wizards choice I notice that the subnet is 255.0.0.0 as opposed to the
    correct 255.255.255.0.

    I have tried lots of things and driving me mad.

    Any ideas

    Thanks I/A
    Greg Reed.
