  1. Yes, these are the ones I'm using. Got the wireless up and running on 98se, but now my network neighborhood is not working. I've looked for an answer for that and tried a few things, but right now I think I can live without mapped drives. I'm a bit reluctant to install 2.1a yet, at least until I can solve this network neighborhood problem. ##### got it. Just removed windows networking from the network panel, reboot, reinstalled it overwriting any newer dll/vxd, reboot. All working now. I'll give 2.1a a go now that everything's working...
  2. For that card, I think that on 98 the only way to run it is to run the setup program, then plug in the card. I'll try to reinstall 98se one last time before I try something else. (note to self: always run "SMARTDRV" before running "DELTREE WINDOWS") (note2 : Run "DELTREE PROGRA~1" BEFORE "DELTREE WINDOWS")

And with fresh install without SP2.1a it will accept it? Or with older SP2.0.2? Yes Win98se. Patched all that was on microsoft's windows update, up to IE6 and all, then installed SP2.1a >>I'm trying to use the linksys drivers and getting a "Your network adaptor is not working properly. You may need to set it up again". >When and where this message appears? It appears at startup, after the splash screen and right before entering my username/password. Windows Networking: (yellow sign, exclamation mark) "Your network adapter Instant Wireless-B PCI Adapter (0005) is not working properly. You may need to set it up again. For more information, see the Network Troubleshooter in Windows Help" (ok) (yes.. adapter is there twice) >>It pulls a few files from sp2.cab during installation.. I would think this is where it fails, but I'm just lost. >Do you see any message that file was not found in SP2.CAB? Not really, but I've notices it takes a good 2 seconds to pull each file from that .cab Retrieveing files from SP2.CAB instead of original CD-ROM is intended behavior of preserving mechanism. >At first, you should determine if the problem is in SE SP 2.1a or anywhere else. Yes, that would be my unfortunate next move.. format the drive, reinstall windows 98se, install the drivers before I install the SP2.1a, then test again. >In the specification is 2.2 PCI Slot, older PCs have 2.1 only. That could have been the case, but until today that pc was booting on a live ubuntu CD and the wireless was working on linux. What I really want to know is if anyone got that card working.. not that I don't trust 3rd party service packs.. but then again, I don't trust the 1st party either, and I have my doubts about the second... Why the move back to windows? The wife.
  4. Hello. I've been rebooting for hours on this. It doesn't seem that win98 with SP2.1a will accept my Linksys WMP11v4 wireless adaptor PCI card. I'm trying to use the linksys drivers and getting a "Your network adaptor is not working properly. You may need to set it up again". It pulls a few files from sp2.cab during installation.. I would think this is where it fails, but I'm just lost. The name of the device is Instant Wireless-B PCI adapter. any suggestion? Has anyone been able to make it work in this setting? This is a fresh install of win98se with the SP2.1a, by the way. Thanks.
  5. Good, it works. It actually needs "windows 98" with the space. and I can uninstall tcp/ip now. Thanks.
  6. Hello Gape. Hello everyone. I've tried to install the AT&T Global Network Client on top of Windows 98SE with the SP 1.6.2 update. It ran into a script updating windows 98's network drivers (a microsoft hotfix, I'll try to find the number again), and now I can't roll back, uninstall tcp/ip or even view network settings in the control panel. It gives me the same error message: "ERROR Invalid Windows version (Windows98 SE). This program requires Windows 95/98. Assuming system is running Windows(57)98." And pressing OK just brings up the error again, stuck in a loop. So the program figured it was an unpatched version of windows 98, added one of microsoft's quick fix automatically, and went on. I can still work, but after every reboot my tcp/ip go back to what they were at the installation of the software instead of sticking to ips assigned by my router. Reinstalling windows is not a problem. I just want to report it. (or if you have a quick fix, I'll try it) You can download the version of AT&T Global Network dialer I used at ftp.attglobal.net/pub/client/win32/v5091.exe (d5091 is the regular internet dialer, v5091 is the one that includes the net firewall/ipdial capabilities) Any help will be apreciated! thanks.
