I have a Dell dimension 350 pc with just a modem connection for a phone line. I just got cable installed which has the ethernet hookup. i would like to still use my 350 with win. 98 if i can. how can i...


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.

Have old compaq Deskpro EN ENS815EC733 M1BU


I would buy a cheap usb card to fit into a pci slot on the old computer.
Otherwise you would need a serial cable (if your laptop has a serial port) if not it would be a serial to usb plus the software to transfer, i would say far too much trouble.
A usb card is a couple £/$

1) Are you referring to the IBM ThinkCentre S50?
(S may look like an 8)

Also need the Type. On the back of your ThinkCentre is this information.
Example: TYPE 8125-E1U

(The S/N after it stands for Serial Number. Do not give this number out, except to authorized personnel)

(I can give you the direct link to Lenovo Support for the Ethernet drivers, with this information.
IF, upon installing the Ethernet drivers does not cure the problem,
look to see if there is an open, {Available}, PCI slot for an Ethernet card.

With the 'Pizza Box' style of computer case there may not be, nor may there be room inside.
However they do make low profile Ethernet cards. {Ethernet Adapter Card)

Or you can find it here,

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=TCTR-MATRIX

It will go in an available PCI slot, or PCI-Express x1 slot.

2) The Model Name, and Model Number is on the bottom of a laptop. Usually in a white Service Tag of some sort, but older models may just have it etched into the plastic.

Usually close to the Windows Product Key, (Holographic sticker)

3) Use a USB to USB Crossover Cable.
Example:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3272684&sku=C184-39977

A USB to USB Crossover cable, isn't simply two USB A male connectors on the ends of a cable.
There is a bridge in the middle of the cable.

It crosses over the wires.
(Easy explanation. In essence it crosses over the wires. In actuality, it crosses over terminals in the USB connector end.

This shows the pinout of a USB cable connector,

http://pinouts.ru/Slots/USB_pinout.shtml

The style used for your desktop, or laptop will be a USB A style.
There are four pins in the connector.

Pin 1 is 5 Volt DC
Pin 4 is a Ground, or Negative connection)

If you have a cable with the ends in the same direction, you will BURN out the USB ports.

The crossover cable reverses these connections. (Pins)

I await the exact Model Number of your IBM ThinkCentre, and the Type.

I have a cash management system Royal alpha


I find that a lot of serial to usb or parallel to usb converters do not work due to the fact you can't get bidirectional communication. In every case I have dealt with, the resolution was a dedicated port card to physically install a parallel or serial port in the system.

Mymy seagate exturnal hd won't install


Have you looked for it on Windows Explorer, My Computer? I don't think you have to install it. I'm assuming it's a USB external HD and that you plugged in the USB cable to an open slot.

OUTPUT SERIAL PORT


Maybe you are using a serial-to-usb converter cable and you havn't installed the drivers for that. It should be some sort of mini-cd in the box.
If not, then you need to provide more information so people can help.
