I have just found my old 98 and would like it to connect to my wireless internet running in my house ( with a modem, Westell model 327W, connected to my XP [the internet works fine here]). I bought an adapter from Linksys (Wireless - G (802.11g) PCI Adapter) which I had installed which is supposed to wirelessly connect to my internet. I have installed all included software. I rebooted. I have tried everything; the computer was made January 21, 1999. Before Wi-Fi. So, when I try to connect to a wireless connection, it keeps asking for a phone number for dial up. I have tried everything from putting in my actual phone number to manually putting in my IP address. Nothing works. Help please!

Simple answer : you cant do it very easialy using anything less than XP SP2
Better answer: You dont use windows own configuration tools. They arent for wireless. You need to use the manufactures software to configure the card (if they have any available for windows 98)
