Hello,

Make sure you have also installed service pack 3. This should get you back online with IE.

Good Luck

Should I buy a new router or upgrade OS?


Well, I find Verizon's statement rather confusing. The OS really has little to with actually connecting to the router and getting an IP address for access to the Internet. Now, trying to use an older browser to actually get INTO the router may be a bit more of an issue. Older browsers may not be compatible with the Webpage that Verizon uses for the router access. You say that the VAIO has Windows XP SP2. Is there some reason why you never upgraded it to SP3? SP3 provides a big upgrade to the OS and there are hundreds of other security patches that followed SP3. Without it, the OS is dreadfully out of date, and this may be more of an issue than the simple fact that it is Win XP. I say this because I have four PCs running Windows XP, and four running Windows 10 on my Verizon FIOS router right now. Two of the XP machines are wired to the network and two are wireless. So I can vouch that Windows XP itself is not the disqualifying issue. If you could provide more information on what you tried to do and what the results were I could possibly be of more assistance. Something tells me the folks at Verizon just didn't want to work with you or their current expertise doesn't go back far enough to relate to Windows XP anymore.

I am running Windows 98 Second Edition and am trying to upgrade my Internet Explorer. Any Ideas?


You have not mentioned the current version of your internet explorer.
The Internet Explorer 6 with service pack 1 was the last edition that can run with Windows 98/98SE/ME
IE6 with service pack2 (the service pack can be installed separately) requires Windows XP or later.
So If you are currently on IE5 you can upgrade it to IE6 and install Service pack 1 after the upgrade. You cannot go beyond IE6 SP1 with Windows 98.

Unable acess web pages-error msg ie 5 or higher version needed


It could be that the sites you going to are specifically written for IE. Now most of the time this should not be an issue with today's web browsers, but some sites have a Browser Validation script they run and if it recognizes that you are using something other than IE, it will through an error. Try upgrading to the current versions of the browser (i.e. FF3). Don't forget Safari and Opera. They may work for you as well.

Bundling my services with Verizon but they say it may not work as i have Windows 98, 128 omb Ram. What do i need to do?


You need to upgrade or just buy a new computer. Im assuming your getting Verizon DSL or FIOS
which need more computer power for the software that it needs.

Try looking for a new computer that is Windows XP Service Pack 3 or Windows Vista
with at least 1 gig of ram. That should fix the problem of verizon services notbeing compatible with your hardware.

Usb 2.0 windows 98


Windows 98 SE supports USB 2.0. The original Windows 98 (gold) or Windows 98 OEM or Windows 98 Upgrade versions which are not SE will not support USB 2.0. Nor is there any way to get USB 2.0 support for these Windows 98 versions unless you upgrade to Windows 98 SE.

Note that the Windows 98 SE upgrade CD will fail upon completion, leaving the SE Upgrade with a corrupt registry, if you try to run the Windows 98 SE Upgrade CD on a Windows 98 system that has a version of IE installed which is higher than IE 4.

Installation Guide” (included in the CD-ROM package).
Identifying the OS

Connecting the camera to a computer using the provided USB cable
Installing the USB
driver for Windows 98
Confirming the computer recognizes the camera
Downloading image files
Disconnecting the USB cable
 

Even if your computer has a USB connector, data transfer may not function correctly if

● Windows 98/98 SE upgrade from Windows 95
● Mac OS 8.6 or lower (except Mac OS 8.6 equipped with USB MASS Storage support
