    Murphy's law - I linked all (4) the other computers in our house to the internet using AT&T cable. Of course my computer isn't complying. So I tried installing a new network card to see if that was the problem. Unfortunately, too many errors came up when I installed the network card. This is what keeps happening:

    I physically installed the network card.
    I then tried installing the driver but errors popped up.
    The file ‘secur32.dll’ on windows 98 second edition cd rom cannot be found
    Insert Windows 98 second edition CD rom and click OK

    Windows encountered an error while trying to install driver. Error code 137.

    Insert disk labeled ‘Windows 98 second edition CD-ROM
    I no longer have this CD-ROM. Anyway around this? Help

    Welcome to TSG Forums. :D
    You may need to see if a freind has a copy of Win 98. Then removing the nic card in Device manager and let windows find it then try to install the driver. You may also want to go into Safe Mode ( press F8 while booting up) and remove all nic cards from device manager then proceed to boot up in normal mode.
    Good luck

    Many installations have the required .CAB files in a directory somewhere on your drive, have you searched for them? When I install any Windows version, I always copy the installation directory somewhere on the system so it's available. Most OEM installations also have them buried in a directory under WINDOWS.
