    Yeah, well, I tried NetBEUI with no luck, Each computer can see its self, but they can't see each other...
    BTW, I'm using a BNC cable, not a crossover, does this make any difference??

    Are both ends terminated with 50ohm resistors? I've dealt very little with BNC cable but I know that much!

    The first thing to do is to make sure that file and printer sharing is enabled on both machines and that each has at least one drive shared. This is a common fault in some versions of windows 95-98. You may want to use TCP/IP instead of netBEUI this will at least allow you to ping the other machine to see if the network hardware is operating. use an address of 192.168.1.1 for one machine and 192.168.1.2 for the other and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 on both. I won't go into a detailed explanation of why those. The 192.168.*.* address range is reserved for intranet use. Most people here will know this allready so it's for your information Skinnyboy.

    I have have used IPX/SPX protocal to network win 95 & win 98 together with no trouble at all! One thing I did have to do was set the frametype to ethernet 802.2 (dont know why this works???)

    I dont wan't to got into an arguement about protocols. I believe Skinnyboys problem has nothing to do with the protocol. It's more likely that the problem is due to either hardware or a sharing/netbios problem. I suggested TCP/IP so that we can eliminate the possibility of a hardware fault by pinging acroos the network. From what I've seen netBEUI is actually the fastest protocol. However netBEUI can't be routed wich makes it fairly useless for anything other than a small LAN.

    Is it possible that my network adapter is faulty?? Or is the fact that the computer can see its self a "sign" that the card is working??

    I've gotten caught many times with bad terminators. You may want to replace both of them before you try anything more drastic.

    I think you may be right about the terminators... I have had great trouble getting other networks to work with these 2 terminators... It could also be the cable..
