networking problem Windows Vista and Windows ME

Posted: 02-24-2008, 05:31 PM
I have 2 computers networked one running Vista and is wired to my router and
the other an old ME and is a wireless connection. Both computers recognize
each other and I can access all folders on the ME computer from the Vista
with no problems. I have the ME computer allowed only to see the public
folder on the Vista. The ME can see the folders allowed however when I try
to access them the compter freezes. After a 5 minutes it is no longer frozen
however I haven't accessed the Vista public folders. Is this a compatiblity
problem or am I missing a setup somewhere?

Thanks,

There's a known problem with computers running Windows 9x (95, 98, ME),
accessing computers running Windows Vista, and freezing. I've not yet seen a
fix for it though.
