    network not accessible

    I have a network with two computers connected via WLAN cards and one via an ethernet cable.
    One of the WLAN computers is running Win98.

    Problem on the Win98 computer:
    Network Neighborhood -> Entire Network:
    "Unable to browse the network.
    The network is not accessible."

    The computer doesn't show up in the workgroups of other computers on the network.


    Settings:

    TCP/IP properties:
    IP address: 192.168.2.103 (manually configured so ZoneAlarm can work; DHCP is disabled)
    Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
    WINS Resolution disabled.
    Gateway: 192.168.2.1
    DNS enabled:
    Host: BUBA2 (computer name)
    DNS address: 192.168.2.1
    ----

    The ping command works perfectly.

    ----
    C:> ipconfig/all

    Windows 98 IP Configuration

    Host Name: BUBA2
    DNS Servers: 192.168.2.1
    Node Type: Broadcast
    NetBIOS Scope ID:
    IP Routing enabled: No
    WINS Proxy enabled: No
    NetBIOS Resolution uses DNS: Yes

    ...

    ----

    The Win98 computer doesn't have any firewalls installed.

    Now what?

    Re: network not accessible

    As you have re-posted this in the Networking forum here - probably a better place for it - I'll lock this thread to prevent duplicate and diverging threads.
