    hi

    anyone knows how to set up lan on win98se,

    thing is i have router and two pc's winxp connected to router
    and i want to connect pc with win98se to router to access internet
    i've installed drivers for network card, card is blinking green and pc sees card, cables are ok, router is blinking green too
    and i can't get to internet, i've tried to configure network and nothing

    You have two XP computers connected to the router and have one 98SE computer connected to the router, but only the two XP computers are going on-line?

    After you connected the 98SE computer to the router, did you try restarting that computer? Sometimes with 98SE or ME, you have to restart the computer after connecting the CAT5 cable on both ends.

    Have you tried connecting it to a different router port? My Linksys BEFSR41 wired router has 4 wired ports, but one of them is bad.

    Does the Device Manager show the network adapter as having the driver installed and working properly?

    If you have a spare CAT5 cable, switch cables and confirm that isn't the problem.

    You didn't mention the brand and model of the network adapter in the 98SE computer.

    OK, I didn't know you have a PCMCIA add-on card for a laptop. I assumed you have a PCI network adapter card for a desktop. I've never used one of those add-on cards, and I've never used Linux.

    Have you talked to your ISP tech support section?

    I did some checking, and you're not the only person who's having trouble getting that card to work with 98SE.

    configuring network should be same as on desktop, you just add card driver, how you configured network to use router in win98se

    Not that familiar with the cards either.

    These are the Internet Options and Network settings I have for my 98SE. Although I use a USB Wireless Adaptor for it now, it was directly connected to my modem/router until I bought a new computer. The basic settings should be the same if you connect Ethernet, Wireless or USB.

    Internet Options in Control Panel:
    Connectionn Tab:
    Dialup and Virtial Network have nothing entered. Turned off.

    ConnectionsSettings if you need to chose a proxy server.
    Never dial a connection checked.

    Under Lan Settings: Automatically detect settings checked.



    Network in Control Panel: Three Tabs

    Access Control: Share-Level checked

    Identification Tab: Computer Name. Work Group, Computer ID

    Configuration tab: Several enties. For properties of each entry select and click on Properties Button
    Client for Microsoft Networks
    Properties: quick logon checked.

    File and Preinter Sharing For MS Networks (Only if you want to share)
    Proerties: Advanced - Browse Master - Auto
    LM Announce - NO

    Your Network Adaptor
    Properties: Drivers-Enhanced Mode NDIS drivers
    Bindings-TCP/IP for Your Network Adaptor

    TCP/IP for Your Network Adaptor
    Properties: Seven Tabs.

    DNS Tab - Disable DNS Checked
    TCP/IP Address Tab - Obtain IP adress Automatically checked
    - Detect connection to network media checked
    Gateway Tab - Your modem's IP adress should show in the white box. If not you can
    enter it.
    Net Bios Tab - Netbios is seleted
    Bindings Tab - Client for MS Networks and File and Printer Sharing
    Wins Tab - Use DHCP For WINS Resolution Checked
    Advanced Tab - Allow Binding to ATM - NO


    Could also be an encryption problem. 98Se does not support WEP or WAP encryption and the codes are usually have to be entered into the adaptor.
