im using bellsouth dsl connection download speed of up to 1.5m... im getting 1.2m on my xp computer... i have networked my win 98 se.. pc using a 4 port dsl/cable router/switch made by linksys... the win 98 pc is only downloading at a speed of 692 k...

im using ethernet connections and rj45 cables..

its my understanding that i should not be loosing that much speed... on the 2nd pc....the win 98 one..... is there anything i can do... setting on my router... settings on the 98 machine...

any help is really appreciated...

thanks

When you go thru a router, sometimes you have to configure the PC for the router rather then the connection.
Have a great one.

You're welcome, I saw a few people with Linksys routers that couldn't send large attachments via email, linksys had a fix, pretty well buried on their site telling owners how to reset the mtu on the router to fix the problem.
Trouble was, the fix was almost impossible to find at their site.
