1 Answer

Connected on Wireless but unable to connect on Internet

I recently installed a 3COM PCI card ( 3CRGPC10075) on my (old) Compaq Laptop ( Pentium II, Windows 98SE). I connect to my home network(XP) through a D Link DI 524 wireless/LAN router. The 3 COM Wirless Card Utility running on my Laptop shows that I am connected to my Network, which confirm that the install was correctly done, however I am still unable to connect on the Internet. From my main PC (running XP ) I use a Network Magic Network Configurator/Utility Monitor to manage my Home Netwrok. Here I am able to see the Compaq laptop has been reconginized and connected to my network on the 3COM Wireless Card. Other PC on the network ( LAN + wireless) can acess the internet expect the Compaq What do I need to do to connect on the INternet from the COmpaq? regards rayan

If not done allready, setup the lan IP address and default gateway in win98 Click MyComputer-ControlPanel-Network-Double Click TCP/IP Adapter for your 3com device-insert LAN info for IP Adress-subnet mask, Gateway and your Internet service providors DNS Addresses info Tab's (3x different Tabs "IP Adress" "Gateway" "DNS Configuration") IP Adress will be at least one number higher than your gateway address and not allready being used by other PC's on your network and gateway address will same as your router interface address subnet mask will be the same for all PC's on your network. For 3com and Netgear routers LAN setup is usually Gateway = 192.168.1.1 Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0 IP Adress = 192.168.1.10(choose alternate number than 10 if allready used by another PC on your network, try to use round numbers, must be a number higher than 1) Once all info is entered click OK (this may trigger a database info update message and task)now your LAN is setup and ready to talk to your network Restart PC and try browsing again. May possibly require reinstallation of the TCP/IP client (you double clicked this to setup your LAN in Win98) or reinstallation of the IIS(Internet Information Services)component found in, Add/Remove Programs-Add/Remove windows components and then try LAN setup again if this does not work first time round

When you purchased the network-adapter, did it include a CD-ROM with device-drivers for Windows 98? Did you install those drivers?

Many "new" network-adapters include software that *ONLY* supports newer versions of Windows (XP/Vista/7) and no longer include support for Windows 98/98SE/NT/2000.

Look on eBay for another 3COM adapter, since that adapter worked for you.

Unable to make router wireless


To use a wireless network/connection you need to do.
1. Configure the router's wireless with SSID, WPA encryption etc.
2. Next configure the wireless card in the computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings so it can connect to the wireless router.
Please click on this link for my instructions on how to secure your wireless network, configure the wireless router and configure the wireless card in the computer/laptop :-

It looks as though this is equipped with a Broadcom WLAN card. Try going to this link for HP/Compaq put in the required information for product number then click on software/driver downloads. then follow the steps for installing the driver. That should do the trick after a clean install of the operating system.

Dell Inspiron ethernet card plug bad, either send tower to Dell for 3 weeks or replace and bypass with new ethernet card PCI, any problems with doing this?


There should not be any problem with you buying your own PCI ethernet card and install it yourself. They are not that expensive. www.newegg.com has on for only $7.99 and it will work fine in your computer. It does not need to be from Dell.

How do you get wireless internet on the 366 MHZ


your processor doesnt really have anything to do with the ability to get wireless internet. You can buy a wireless card and install it into your tower. You can buy one at any computer store or even walmart. This is assuming that you have a desktop pc and not a laptop. If you have a laptop you can buy a wireless card for it also. The easiest route would be to buy a usb wireless card, as long as you have a usb port available. Here is a link to a usb adapter:
