    My uncle has a wireless xp laptop and using dsl modem. I want to share the same connection with him. I have 98 laptop and its not wireless. Someone tried to install the adapter, but it wouldn't connect. So, I returned the item back. Either the person didn't install and set it up right. Or it wouldn't connect at all. Before I returned it, the guy at the store try to connect it with his computer and it worked there. Don't know why it didn't work at home. Any ideas?

    I suspect the guy at the shop wasn't running Windows '98. There may be a workaround to the driver problem but is your version of '98 the '98SE?

    There'll be plenty of recommendations for that over on the Linux Board but I daresay you'll want to stay with Windows. :D

    Seriously, though, if the machine is of a '98 vintage you've done well to keep it going so long and if it still has life in it, a Linux OS will have no problems finding ways of connecting.
