    I'm running XP with VPC4. I have just installed Win95.
    The network adaptor seems to be loaded as "PCI Fast
    Ethernet DECchip 21140 Based Adaptor" but my XP
    physically has an "Intel(R) Pro/100 VE Network
    Connection". I still continue to get the "Unable to
    browse the network" error when I double click on Entire
    Network icon.

    Can anyone help me with this?

    The VM hardware is emulated, so the DEC driver is correct.

    You don't provide enough information to really answer
    your question. Let's start with some basic information,
    such as how is the VM's network option set?

    I only have the one adaptor and I selected the Intel(R)
    Pro/100 adaptor (same as my physical h/w).

    Yes the VPC does have it's own IP and the subnet mask
    also match. I've setup 80-90 computers (95,98,ME,2k,XP-
    Home, XP-Pro) and I've had no problems getting them all
    set up and working fine within a minute or two. We don't
    use DHCP so I assign the IP and subnet mask, computer
    name and workgroup. It's as simple as that. Should I be
    setting something up differently because this VPC is
    running on a PC that already has an IP? I assume it
    shouldn't matter that my VPC is Win95.

    In the settings for the VM, what selection did you make
    for the Networking? If you are assigning your own
    addresses, I would think you want it to connect to the
    Host NIC (e.g., I have an Intel Pro/100 on the Host, so
    in the VM network settings, Adapter 1 is set to the Intel

    Just to clarify, are you referring to Virtual PC 4 from Connectix or
    Microsoft Virtual PC 2004?

    There's a very big difference
