I have 4 computers all have wireless cards 2 are older computers running win 98 - 2 are running win xp. My modem is Sympatical to go. It reads on the side of my router DWL - G700AP - on the front it reads D-Link Airplus G 2.4 GHz wireless Access. Someone had hooked it up for us 1 1/2 years ago BUT nothing works and never did except for 1 computer which is in the office of our house. The other computers are 1 upstairs and 2 others outside office all in the same house. I don't know what to do - should I have a stronger d-link router and if so what should I buy. I am not a Guru but I am ok to install software but not when it talks about cache and all the Guru stuff. I am seeking anyhelp you can offer me. thank you stardustin

The Lucent Win Modem is hardware on your computer and if that has failed then that could be causing a problem during the installation if it can't connect to the printer. What is your product number? Use this link to find it: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/findModel?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=ca&lang=en
Which type of printer cable did you use an Ethernet cable or a USB cable?
Does your cable modem have wireless internet? If so, you can buy a Netgear wireless usb port adapter for about $20 and use that to connect wirelessly to the internet. Your pc has usb port connections - right? (Usb port looks like a rectangle)
If you don't want to use a wireless connection you can purchase a cable modem with a usb connection for about $65. You run the ethernet cable to the modem and then a usb cable from the modem to your pc.
If you have a serial cable connection on your pc (looks like a round circle with tiny metal pins in it) you can buy a gender changer and convert that to usb (in case you dont have a usb connection or need another one). You can buy one for about $11.
You can buy an I/O Gear bluetooth usb adapter for $13 and pick up the internet via bluetooth by putting it in your usb port but I'm unsure how well it would work with Win 98.
If you have another pc that has an ethernet connection you could use good old fashioned bi directional printer cable and network both computers together. You may need to upgrade to win xp for networking capabilities.

1 Was it working before?
2. Is the bluetooth compatible with Win98? Does it meet the bluetooth's minimum requirements?
3. Is your computer an old computer? Maybe your computer's USB ports are USB 1.0 and the 4Gb USB is USB2.0. This I believe will be incompatibile.
4. Try those USB adapters at a different computer to further isolate your problem.
Depending on the operating system that you are running, and if you have the appropriate wireless cards, you should be able to do this either with or without the modem. If you have the modem connected to one computer, and wireless cards on both computers, then your best option would be to just connect directly from one computer to the next. If you can tell me the answers to these few questions, I can help you get on the right path.
What operating system are you running? Windows XP? Vista? Macintosh?
Do both of your computers have wireless network cards? If not, then which computers have the wireless network, and which computer has the modem?
