Question about Modems

New USB Port needed everytime I hook up my Sierra Compass

I am not sure if this is an issue with the usb/vista itself or the actual broadband card but here goes. For the last couple of days I have had some issues getting my card to be recognized, I always put it in the same slot and never do anything different. Recently its not been recognized by the computer as the smartview connection manager will ask for the device to be connected.

I move it to a random different usb port and then eventually when I find one that works it will install the drivers again, and begin functioning. It only does this for this item as I have tried the ports with other usb connections like mice etc.

Its weird and its driving me insane.

I'm tryin to install the sierra wireless card 598 on win 98 manually. Does anyone know how to do


Hello sir, hi, installing a USB device on windows 98 is kinda hard but possible. here are some things that you should do:
  1. you may need the sierra CD device driver that comes with your wireless card.
  2. next is that your PC should support USB 1.1 or 2.0. If you are using windows 98, make sure that your USB port is working fine, you can insert a flash drive to confirm if your usb port is working.
  3. depending on the setup files they may need you to plug in the device as the setup file loads the driver or later.
  4. run the sierra CD setup file to install your wireless card. (hope win 98 supports this device)
  5. after the setup, plug in your wireless USB device, windows 98 should detect it.
If things didnt work out as listed above, do it setup several times, ............ still no progress call your dealer for proper installation on your PC.

Usb speed problem


I am not sure you can fix it there or different USB types.
  1. USB 1.0 Specified data rates of 1.5 Mbit/s (Low-Speed) and 12 Mbit/s (Full-Speed).
  2. USB 2.0 Added higher maximum speed of 480 Mbit/s (now called Hi-Speed).
Only certian motherboards have the USB 2.0..

That would seem to be the issue..

Usually when you have a network connection but cannot access the internet there is an IP issue. Here are some things to try:
  • If you haven't already done so, restart your computer
  • In Network connections - delete the Sprint connection under Dial Up Connections & restart pc
  • Right click on Local Area Connection and click properties - click TCP/IP and click properties - make sure Obtain an IP Address Automatically is selected
  • If your cable modem came with an installation CD - try reinstalling
Hopefully one of these will get you back on the Internet.

Toshiba Cable Modem PCX1100u


OK. First of all you do not need a special or seperate driver for the Ethernet port. Its factory loaded with your OS.

All you need to do is plug the Ethernet cable into the LAN port on your HP Desktop and then into the LAN port (not the WAN port) of your cable modem.

The second thing is if its only a cable modem, then I suggest you proceed with caution as there is NO built-in firewall on a cable modem. Yes you will get on the net, but you are likely to be attacked with virus the moment you connect. I suggest you check very carefully whether the cable modem (if that's what it is) does/does not have a firewall as you would be very unwise connecting up like that.

Next, forget USB connection to the router/cable modem. That technolgy we've moved on from.. Your Vista shodul be 'plug n play' adn should configure the router for you. obviously that bit isn't so slick on yours.

Let me know how you get on..
