I want to create a connection between my Vista and my 98se with their modems. In lieu of that, I want to at least be able to connect the two of them for old dos games that I like to play. How do I find out what number my modem is supposed to dial? Or, am I not thinking correctly?

Hi welcome to forum, well modems are not designed for connecting two PC together they are suppose to connect to your telephone line and they get max speed about 56kbps. why don't you connect your computers thought Ethernet connection.

Well, I've been trying to, but I can't get my 98 to properly install the driver for our ethernet card. I've downloaded a few different drivers and automatic installation programs from the maker (realtek), but nothing seems to happen.

If it'll be any help, my ethernet card is a RealTek rlt8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC.

Are the "old DOS" games even network-aware? Networking wasn't common when DOS was the standard.

Well, I know the main ones I want to play have options for "modem link" and "direct link", and one of them has "Network Game" which tells me to select which "node" it needs. The games are Dark Legions and WarCraft: Orcs and Humans, in case you're curious.
