This is certainly a "known" issue, many peeps have probs networking these 2 OS's. It has to do with ME using NetBui and XP using TCP/IP. There is a work-around, if I can find it I will post.

If it's Netbui and TCP/IP causing the problem, finding a version of netbui that will run on XP would solve it I think. (that reminded me of the issues a friend had and I remember him saying this was a solution he explored)

XP does not default install NetBEUI. It's on the CD though. You have to install it from the following folder on the CD:

VALUEADD\MSFT\NET\NETBEUI

My home network was using NetBEUI and when I upgraded to XP on a couple of machines, I had to install the protocol manually. I found XP to be a very easy to network OS. It's also more secure, at least in it's default state. I've never had experience with ME, can't stand stuff crashing, so I can't comment on that.

Lemme get this straight....

ME doesn't ship with NBT (NetBIOS over TCP/IP)? That would be far preferable to NetBEUI.

I'ver never networked with NetBEUI, as it has some pretty fundimental problems.

It's completely non routable.
It's broadcast based (every computer on the network has to process the packets to find out if the packet is for them) Broadcasts also affect switches by forcing them to act as a hub for the broadcast.

The only positive point about NetBEUI is that it's so simplistic there's no set up for it.
