One of my computers is not upgradable to have a network card installed. The computer is running Windows 98. I purchased a USB to Networka adapter but I do not see the USB under the Device Manager. Do I have to install a separate USB driver ?

Your earliest reply will be highly appreciated. Thanks

If there is no USB hub in Device Manager, you either don't have USB hardware, or it's disabled in the BIOS. Fix that BEFORE you even plug in the USB to Ethernet adapter. Don't try to get the USB hub working with anything plugged into the USB ports.

Put your mouse cursor over the My Computer Icon on the desktop and "RIGHT CLICK" the mouse, then click on properties.
Click Device Manager and go to Universal Serial Bus Controllers,
click plus sign to the left of it and you should have two items listed:
Something like Inter to PCI Universal Host controller and
USB root hub

Neither should have any marks over the little icons to the left, no exclamation marks or question marks.
