  1. Thanks for your help. I agree the router is the way to go but unfortunately I can't find that router in Indonesia. It may be available here under a different model # but the price will be much higher than it is in the US, that's for sure. I did see one on eBay for $83 but it was in the US and shipping/handling/insurance and customs taxes (25%) would make it unaffordable. I'd pay $50 for a driver if that's a fair price. I paid $70 for the Pantech USB modem in 2009.
  2. Hi Joe. I did find this: http://www.driverssoftware.com/drivers.php/data-modem-cdma-6803-driver/70037 and http://www.baltia.net/en/nodes/view/594 Those are C-motech Rev. A modems (USB) that support Win98. So, I'm downloading those drivers and just need to make a few edits? This would be awesome if it works.
  3. My ISP offers two interfaces for the Pantech PX-500 (PC5750): PCMCIA and USB http://mobile-8.com/mobi/index.php/Device/Device/ My wife has an Asus laptop with Windows 7 on it. Would it be possible to run an ethernet cable from her laptop to my PC and use internet connection sharing until I can afford that router? Paul
  4. Sorry for the dumb question, but is it possible or worthwhile for someone to write a Windows 98 driver for some types of hardware? I have the ubiquitous Pantech PX-500 (PC5750) USB modem. It uses CDMA 1xRTT, EVDO Rev. O and Rev. A and only works with Windows 2000 and up. It is quite popular for use with Sprint, Verizon and other ISPs in desktops or laptops. There are probably a lot of folks who use mobile internet these days and would like their win98 laptop (I use a desktop) to be online with high speeds. I bet they'd be willing to pay for the drivers as I know I am. I don't know if it is possible or if R. Loew or anyone else could write drivers for some popular 2k/XP hardware for $$$. If it is not possible or worth it, do you know of a USB modem that works out of the box with Windows 98SE? Thanks. I appreciate your help. Paul
  5. Creative Ectiva 5.1 PCI sound card (white box, cheap, sold in Japan and Asia and uses WDM driver model) is fully supported in Windows 98SE/Me. May stutter when playing back WMA files while performing processor-intensive tasks, but it also does this in 2k/XP. Canon CanoScan LiDE 25 USB scanner is fully supported in Windows 98SE/Me. Works perfectly. Fuji Xerox DocuPrint 203A laser printer is fully supported in Windows 98/Me. BAFO Sil3512 (Silicon Image chip) SATA-I PCI card. Can hook up to two SATA drives. Has its own BIOS which is easily flashed. Works perfectly with 98SE/Me. Shuttle AN35N-400 nForce 2 motherboard supports Windows 98SE/Me, however, it is unstable using nVidia's IDE driver on standard IDE hard drive. A workaround I've tested a few times confirms (for me) that it is perfectly stable in Win9x when using a SATA hard drive on the Sil3x12 SATA add-on card and not installing the nVidia IDE drivers. IMHO, my previous ATI Radeon 9600XT 256MB AGP 8x card was less stable than nVidia GeForce4 MX440 64MB with AGP8x I am currently using. That said, the capacitors on the ATI card were bulging and leaking, so if that had been going on for a long time, that could have been the problem all along. Regards, Paul
  6. I installed the Windows Me unofficial service pack from the MDGx website and it makes WinMe very stable. I haven't had a blue screen yet or any hanging/freeze. However, when I visited Windows Update it shows the following updates. Should I install them or were they already included in the unofficial service pack? Thanks! :-) Paul Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (KB916281) Cumulative Security Update for Outlook Express 6 Service Pack 1 (KB837009) Security Update for Windows Media Player 9 for Windows 98 and Windows ME (KB917734) Security Update for DirectX 9 (KB904706) Critical Update for Windows Media Player Script Commands (KB828026) 816093: Security Update Microsoft Virtual Machine (Microsoft VM) Recommended Updates Cumulative Update for Outlook Express 6 Service Pack 1 for Windows Me (KB887797) Microsoft .NET Framework version 1.1 Windows Automatic Updating (Windows Me) Euro Conversion Tool
  7. I need Verizon Access Manager software for Windows 98SE. Will the Pantech PX-500 USB EVDO Rev. A modem (aka PC5750) work with Win98? Verizon's website lists 5.8.2 as the last version to support Win98 but they don't have a download link on their website AFAIK. I currently use Verizon Access Manager for Windows XP but would like to use it on Win98. Thanks! Paul
