you can buy just about any PCI NIC card from ebay or even walmart and they should work. make sure they are compatible with your OS. it will say on the box.

Compaq Presario 5220 Desktop Windows 98 internet: Dial-up Can a DSL card be installed or would I need to go with a wireless USB? And would wireless USB work on Win98?


You can install a network card inside the computer. You will need a PCI or an ISA card. (I know PCI network cards are easy to find at most of the computer shops.) See this site for how to install a card: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07111&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=93139 . However you should open your computer and check the space between the devices in the slots in the computer. There is an AGP slot with a video graphics card, 1 PCI/ISA slot with a modem (default specs), one free ISA slot and one free PCI slot. However depending on the graphics card one of these slots may be blocked by the card. You'll either need to get a card that fits the available slot or remove the modem and use that slot.

Here are some PCI 10/100 network cards: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=587&name=10-100%20Ethernet%20PCI/ISA . Most of these are compatible with Win98. I'm not sure if there are any gigabit NIC with Win98 drivers.

Wired and wireless USB NIC adapters exist. However, you will be limited to the USB speed. If you have USB 1.1, that will be really slow. Most likely your computer will require a reboot anytime the connection is lost.

I hope this helps.

(who recently removed an internal modem to put in a PCI gigabit card in a newer desktop than yours. The procedure was straightforward and improved network performance in the household immensely. The failing on-board NIC was tying up the router for everyone.)

Compaq Presario Modem/NIC Combo (212786001)

we have no idea at all what you are running there at all
NO PC stated
NO OS stated (xp,vista/w7/8/10, why?)
An AT%T what? what modem exactly so they did not set it up for you ? no way they would not do that after all its' their modem and you run it from them as a service.


does your unstated PC use Ethernet cable Cat5/6 to the At&T modem or router? that is the fast way to get internet
fastest, most easy, and just plugs in.
your post lacks all key facts,
sorry.

If the problem is there both wired and wireless, the problem is then narrowed to your computer's modem/nic device. Speak with a Laptop repair tech about replacing this bit of hardware. When did you lose connection with Internet? Recently or long ago?

Compaq presario 1700 LCD issues


i have the exact same problem. try connecting the laptop to an external VGA screen. if it works, then the problem is most likely a loose cable (connector). It turns out that the connector (which connects the motherboard or gfx card to the LCD screen) on my laptop is torn and cut. see if u have the same problem. this link might help u check out ur problem:

you should be able to
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00840496.pdf

if your system is still within warranty I would think twice about opening the case yourself to installing a new network card.. you will be voiding your warranty.. so think about it

another thing i would try before deciding on going for another network card is to check your onboard network adapter has updated drivers... or you may want to reinstall the drivers for that adapter.. either one of those may probably fix your issue assuming is not a hardware failing given that your system may not be that old.... make sure you check the windows update and look for any new hardware driver for your network adapter that may be avaliable through windows update.

before you install your new network pci card you may have/want to disable the one on board going into your bios for that. so to ensure there's no resource conflicts when installing the driver for your new card (it may not be a problem even if you don't but if you run into problems while installing the new card consider this suggestion)
