BUT is the network card where you plug in USB or is it somewhere else inside? If so, how do I locate it?
Posted 13 May 2006 - 07:14 PM
You plug the USB lead into a USB socket, something else you figured out, and the signal is fed to whatever is installed for that socket

select TCP.IP->PCI Fast Ethernet DEC21143 Based Adapter, click Properties
GatewayWINS Configuration, IP Address, DNS Configuration - all blank
Are there supposed to be numbers there?
I keep hearing about protocol - some say it's supposed to be listed beside installed network adapter. I haven't seen anything BESIDE listings of adapter. Am I understanding that indicates I have problem?
Is this supposed to be there but since it's NOT then THAT indicates problem with NIC?

Earlier I asked if running USB AND ethernet from modem at same time would mess things up - do you think it will?

The network card would have a light if connecting

I don't get smooth start ups, I have to reboot, reboot, unplug ALL USB devices, pray, reboot . . . .
I get flag/windows:
(1) Advanced Power Management
When last time computer tried to go on stand-by it stopped responding - Do you want to prevent it from going on stand by in future?
When I select Yes - if most ofter goes into start up, I'll get background image for desktop but it stops, no desktop icons. I have to reboot and hope it will get past it the next time.
I hit Alt, Ctrl, Delete -
(2) System Busy
Waiting for Close Program dialog box to be displayed. Press any key to return to Windows and wait or hit Ctrl, Alt, Delete.
(3)I've also seen a lot of - Problem with display settins adapter type incorrect of current settings do not work with hardware.
During start up it gets to WIN98 window with scroll/graph at bottom. It will often slow down or stop for a while before proceeding. It will do this several times during start up.
Before this surge problem I rather often have had problems with Stand by mode. I'd set it to Stand by, leave computer, come back it find it waiting to go to Stand by mode. I most often would have to Alt, Ctrl, Del just to get it to unfreeze. Same thing if left alone and it tried to go into Stand by.
I greatly appreciate all assistance!

I can not get puter to Restart. It will sit and sit then I often get window stating - system waiting for Close Program dialog box to be displayed. At that point I keep hitting Alt. Ctrl, Delete till it shuts down - which may take a while.
I have seen that in Safe Mode it will Restart.
In getting some Bellsouth (my ISP) help trying to get DSL modem to connect thru newly installed ethernet card - I get lights at card and modem saying ethernet is OK. However I can not get computer to connect to DSL modem. They say something like TCP/IP Stack is missing?? MinsockFix has been used but does not solve problem.
For a week I used USB. Today it will not work. Bellsouth says Win98 (first edition) will not work with USB. I've used USB with card reader, for over a year. Used Intel USB camera for about 5 years. So I'm very confused.
I guess what I'm asking is if there is anyone who can assist online? I'm using my work laptop (Mac).
I appreciate the help.
