    I have a LAN at home, 5 machines, XP, 98SE, 95, through a
    D-Link DI704P, to a ADSL modem. Everything worked fine,
    and still is, except for the machine (98SE) I just
    cleaned and reinstalled WINDOWS (98SE).

    Although I made exactely the same Network configuration
    it previously had (unless I forgot something, but can<t
    see what), this machine at best, can see one of the
    computers (although it cannot enter its shared resources).

    Protocols installed : NetBEUI, TCP/IP and IPX/SPX (other
    98 machines use those same).

    After hours and hours of trials, I still can't figure out
    what I may have forgotten...

    Any idea ?

    Thanks,

    Robert

    Particularly as you have xp machines present, it becomes preferable to
    only use one protocol for file and printer sharing.

    Another common unwanted byproduct of re-installing is the inclusion of
    the registry value "autologon" which you might need to remove from
    here.

    HKLM/software/microsoft/windows/currentversion/network/realmodenet
