weird hub problem
I have 2 computers connected to my hub, both can get internet fine, but I cant access one from the other, I have a web and FTP server on both of them and am trying to work on my PHP scripts on either computer but it wont let my connect. This has only started happening since I switched ISP's to Telus ADSL. I am allowed to run 2 computers off the same modem, they give you 2 IPs to start. If anyone has had a similar problem or knows how to fix this, please reply.
1 computer runs Win XP
1 computer runs Win 98

I think the firewall from within WinXP is causing a problem. Check your Network Connections, right click on the lan card listed on your xp pc and choose properties, there disable the firewall and see if you're able to connect.

What are the IP settings on both machines? Can one machine ping the other?
