    Appreciate some assistance.

    In a PC running Windows Me, installed a new hard drive. The PC was connected to a router and cable modem through an EZ Card 10/100 SMC 1211TX.

    Kept the old hard drive for a little while. If this drive is connected back to the PC temporarily, using a USB case:

    Q#1 Is there some way of transferring all the Network settings to the new hard drive to re-establish the Internet Cable connection?

    Q#2 Is there a particular folder where all the cable connection information is kept?

    Thanks for the help.

    I'm assuming you've installed Windows ME on the new HD and it's up and running correctly. What happens when you connect to the router? If you are running DHCP you do not need the old settings just plug into the router and power up the pc.

    There might be a registry folder that contains all the information you are asking for, but are you planning to copy over that information to the new hard drive? If you don't remember the settings, then connect the old hard drive back into the computer and gather that info. I don't think it's possible to just copy that portion of information over. If you plan to duplicate the whole hard drive, then use Norton Ghost.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Ended up doing things manually. It was not difficult.
