Try another pci slot. Alot of these cards need their installation disks depending on your internet provider. And they will want you to install the software before the hardware (card).
But while you have your card out if you don't have an installation disk write down as much info as you can find, name model ect.. on the card.
If it still doesn't detect it make sure it is a working card. Then go to device manager looking for any yellow exclamation marks or red x's next to any devices, especially ones that have to do with internet connections.
If you've tried all these things and found something wrong feel free to write back and I will try to help you through it, ok.

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.

I have a Dell XPS400 and can not connect to the internet because the machine does not have any installed network adapters. I have always had internet access...where do I find this adapter if I can't get...


This is onr example of a Network adapter, or also know as an Ethernet Adapter Card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=686143&CatId=200

This is Dell Support >XPS 400 desktop computer > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps400/sm/index.htm

1) Work on a table. Computer off, and unplugged from power, open the computer case.

(Removing the Computer Cover, in the list)

2) Follow Anti-Static precautions.

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components, inside a computer.

To relieve your body of Static, TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case.
Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, upon your return be sure to Touch the metal frame again ]

3) View the motherboard inside your computer.
(The motherboard is also referred to as the Mainboard, {Proper speak}, and System Board)

Technical Overview > System Board Components,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps400/sm/techov.htm#wp1053398

Viewing the illustration of the motherboard, the Ethernet Adapter Card example I gave above, would go in either one of the PCI expansion slots.

These are white in color, and in the illustration are labeled - PCI Card Connectors.

If there is already an adapter card installed in both PCI expansion slots, then see if the PCI Express x1 expansion slot is open.

In reality, PCI Express is a better technology than PCI.

Shown on the motherboard as PCI Express x1 Card Connector.

This is an example of an Ethernet Card, (Ethernet Adapter Card), that uses the PCI Express x1 expansion slot,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4675156&CatId=200

The reason I have suggested buying, and installing an Ethernet Adapter Card is threefold.

1) You may have your Ethernet cable plugged into the Ethernet port of the computer,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps400/sm/about.htm#wp1053567

[Number 3 - Network Connector],

and the built-in Ethernet is no good.
Reinstalling drivers May help, but the above is a sure thing.

2) You have an Ethernet Adapter Card plugged into one of the PCI slots, or the PCI Express x1 slot, and the Ethernet adapter card is no good.
They do go bad, and are economical to replace.

3) There was an Ethernet Adapter Card installed previously, but taken out before you received the computer.

What is the advantage of PCIe expansion bus and how willl it contribute to providing a solution at the internet cafe?


A PCI expansion bus is a slot in your computer, a place where yo can plug in a electonic device. There are several different kinds of slots in most desktop or tower style computers, PCI is one of them. PCI slots will accomodate a variety of expansion devices, a modem or Network interface card for example.

How a PCI clot will interface with the rest of your question is a mystery to me. What is the problem at the internet cafe??? I would expect most folks would use a laptop computer at a internet cafe ... laptops do not have PCI slots. The Cafe may have a tower with PCI slots and they may have an issue that could be addressed by an expansion card installed using the PCI card.

If you can ask your question or present your situation, I and other volunteer workers here would be glad to have a look at it.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

Computer Will not start with my new pci device


Remove the card and install again making sure it goes all the way in..( and/or installing on another slot.. Make sure theres no hair or dust goes in the slot.. If problem persist, 1. You probably need to access bios n configure/enable the pci ports.. 2. The power supply is insufficient.

Apple G5 - PCI-X slots


PCI-X is powerful expansion port. The purpose of the slots on your motherboard is for you to be able to install a component that doesn't already exist hardwired on your motherboard. The most common use is for high speed internet connections called a network or ethernet card (the fat phone cord type of connection, also called cat-5).

PCI-X slots can take both PCI-X and certain types of PCI cards. The processing power potential of the slot is only fully used in certain situations and with the correct components.

SUMMARY:
PCI-X is for you to add a component to your computer, most likely a high speed internet card. You should use the full slot by purchasing a PCI-X compliant Ethernet card. This gives you the potential to transfer data at super high speed
