Windows XP & Windows 98, Wired and Wireless Networking - Windows Networking

Anybody know a way to network xp pro and windows 98 computers in a wired or wireless way? The only hitch is that these computers belong to a domain. I would like to be able to send laptops out into the field wirelessly, and be able to share files and printers on each of these laptops. I have no problem connecting 98 to each other.

    Default Windows XP & Windows 98, Wired and Wireless Networking

    Anybody know a way to network xp pro and windows 98
    computers in a wired or wireless way? The only hitch is
    that these computers belong to a domain. I would like to
    be able to send laptops out into the field wirelessly, and
    be able to share files and printers on each of these
    laptops. I have no problem connecting 98 to each other.
    But xp to xp, or 98 to xp, I can't get to work. I'd like
    to keep the users on the domain and still be able to
    network them outside the office. I have given the same
    usernames and passwords on both OS's, same workgroup,
    taken off simple file sharing on xp, and confirmed that
    NIC's and cables are fine. Any suggestions?...

    u must have one HECK of a HUGE wireless network if u plan to send people out
    in the "field" and still expect them to be able to conenct to your
    connection - unless this field is in your backyard.

    our D-link has a 350 meters indoor distance and outside upto 1200 meters.

    Sorry, ihave no suuggestion on how to get this to work as this is new to
    myself.
