I had my PowerBook G3 (Wallstreet)and my Imac networked on a Peer-Peer direct crossover connection. Everything was running smoothly. I just bought a Hub (Surecom) and I now just can't get the Macs to recognize each other. The hub give me 2 green lights, recognizing both machine. When I go back to the direct connection, everything is still fine. The iMac is running on OS 8.6 and the PowerBook on OS 9. File Sharing is now slow as hell on the PowerBook. It is also giving me a message on the PowerBook that another machine has the same IP Address. Any Set Up that I should know about? Any document that thoroughly describe setting a network with a hub?
BTW, the cable I use with the hub are straitgh through, so no this is not the problem.
Thanks in advance, guys!
