A friend wants to use an old Windows machine (98 SE) for wireless internet. I completely re-installed Windows 98. After some McAfee and other stuff I installed the wireless LAN software. First it worked fine. I have the icon on the lower right bottom, I can access internet (signal is weak though). Then I noticed that the sound card didn't work. Probably a driver problem, but after downloading the drivers I could not install them ('no sound card present, please install card'). The sound card used to work. I had an other sound card (SB PCI128), so I plugged that one in. Windows detected the sound card and installed the drivers. Now the sound card is working but the wireless LAN isn't. The wireless LAN utility pops up briefly, but that disappears again. Icon is also gone. My friend re-installed the drivers for the wireless LAN and for a moment the wireless LAN worked again. But not anymore. Soundcard is working properly. Any idea? Is it an IRQ conflict? I thought the wireless LAN (USB stick) doesn't use IRQ...

Problem solved by removing the WLAN software, re-install the drivers and re-starting the router. And rebooting Windows a LOT of times....
