TmEE Posted April 5, 2014 Share Posted April 5, 2014 (edited) I have been experimenting with WinME and I will be switching over to in from 98SE for sure, mainly because it takes much more effort on ME to get large blits fail than it does on 98SE and TCP/IP does not go through some form of corruption after a while that makes it drop new connections.Anyway I have this one weird problem around accessing network shares from my 98 based server :I cannot access any share until I have accessed a share that is not password protected through Network Places by going to workgroup->computer->share. Accessing a password protected share prior to that will make windows yell share is inaccessible or nothing happens altogether, sometimes password is asked but nothing happens beyond that. Also none of the shortcuts will work prior to accessing a share by going to it through Network Places as I described earlier...I only get "share/computer is not accessible" type error messages. When I do get such an error I need to hit refresh in the workgroup window and after that I can attempt access again.On my 98SE computers there's no problems around this, I access the share from shortcut and it will ask me password or show the share directly, no errors ever (unless network cable in unplugged )Has anyone ever experienced something similar ?What settings can I change in the server and/or the ME computer ?EDIT:Solution :get driver version 126.96.36.199 if you have Broadcom NetXtreme 5788 NIC and experience the issues described.I will host the versions I found on my site sometime, I need to reorganize some stuff first.
