Hooking up W95 - W98 in network

1.Do both computers use the TCP protocol?

2. Doesn't W95 use the IPX?

3. I use a Hub/ broadband router: Do connect both computers via Ethernet to the router...

4. Or,,,, do I hook both computers to a Switch and then link the Switch to the Hub?

Neighborhood Network gives me error messages. Not showing network.

    1. make sure TCP/IP and NetBIOS protocol is installed on both

    2. IPX/SPX was used for Novell Networks

    3.+4. either will work

    check the Neighborhood Network after you set the workgoupe name and enabled sharing. they will need an IP number which they shold receive from the router.
