    I am trying to set up my other PC, with Windows 98se as the OS, - I have a wireless Netgear WG311 wireless card connected, wireless router is on, the software is installed, but for some reason the speed shows up as 1mbps instead of 54 and also i cant go online with it. any ideas ?


    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.

    Yes. Uninstall windows 98 and install windows 2000. Or any type of "windows 200-".

    You can install win2k on virtually any machine you should bother having, and...well...it works better in every conceivable way (with SP4). Need I say more? :P

    I did some googling for general issues with Windows 98 and your particular hardware. All I found were installation difficulties. Since I haven't had that problem (I don't use wireless), nor can I look at your computer first hand....you're shit out of luck from me. :/

    Does Windows 2000 require less memory etc than XP home, then ?

    (reason i ask is i isntaled XP professional, but it was painfully slow)
