Win2K-WinXP-Win98 networking - Windows Networking

I have a mixed wired/wireless network. One laptop (XP) keeps dropping the connect about every minute. I have been told that it is because I am using NETBEUI (to allow Win98 connection). Questions: 1. Any idea why the link is being dropped? I have another laptop (configured identically by with a different (Netgear) wireless card) that does not have this problem. 2. Is there an alternative to NETBEUI when I need to connect Win98? 3. Does WinXP Network wizard work with mixed topologies (wired/wireless) and OSs (Win2K, WinXP, Win98)? THX...

    Default Win2K-WinXP-Win98 networking

    I have a mixed wired/wireless network. One laptop (XP)
    keeps dropping the connect about every minute. I have
    been told that it is because I am using NETBEUI (to allow
    Win98 connection). Questions:
    1. Any idea why the link is being dropped? I have another
    laptop (configured identically by with a different
    (Netgear) wireless card) that does not have this problem.
    2. Is there an alternative to NETBEUI when I need to
    connect Win98?
    3. Does WinXP Network wizard work with mixed topologies
    (wired/wireless) and OSs (Win2K, WinXP, Win98)?

    1. dropping: not sure what you mean drop. If xp doesn't list on my network
    places, it is possible master browser issue since you have mixed OS network.
    2. NetBEUI: enable netbios over tcp/ip on xp.
