To be honest, I would return that computer to Windows 98. With only 64 MB of memory, you are really going to suffer in performance, perhaps to the point that drivers will not load properly, and I would be really surprised if you get anything to work on that computer.

Upgrade the RAM first, and then let's go forward from there.



well, the problem was only the linksys. the ip addresswasnt found. i dont think low in ram will cause the linksys to not find the ip adress.


but do u think gettin win98 would make the wireless connection find the p adress with linksys and connect to the internet?
