I have a 600MHz PIII with Win ME that I'm trying to connect to a custom built 2.53GHz P4 with Win XP. I can get the computers networked, but I can't get on the internet on the ME computer. Normally it works with ME, but im ****ed because I had to install over 98SE and it doesnt work. any ideas?

I had a similar problem yesterday after I swapped my MOBO's (running W2K and WinME).

Assuming you have 2 NIC's in the XP rig this is what you should look at:

Right click on "My Network Places", select Properties.
Right click the NIC that is used for the Internet connection, select Properties.
Under the "General" tab these should be listed:
Client for Microsoft Networks.
Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
If they are listed go to the Advanced tab and make sure "Allow other users to connect through this computers Internet connection" is checked.
