ohhhh, right from the start - - Network Neighborhood? Is that an XP thing? My OS is Win98.
It's been a while since I've dabbled in Windows 98, but I'm pretty sure there should be a Network Neighborhood on the Desktop, right below My Computer? Maybe not
Are you talking Start>Settings>Control Panel>Network, open to Configuration?
Or right click My Computer>System Properties, open Network adapters then remove items from Configuration window?
It appears I will have to go the Start>Settings route but I want to be positive before removing anything. While reading your note it appears you go in another way (that I don't follow) before you go the Start>Settings way.
Yes, it will be fine if you do it this way.
Remove ONLY items related to Network cards correct? Leave Dial-Up and DSL modem adapters alone.
Remove TCP/IP adapters that go with NIC? I have adapters for two NIC but only one TCP/IP for NIC.
After you uninstall your adapters, the TCP/IP protocol should really be removed with them; if not, then remove it. It's easy to re-install later on.
What about the Client for Microsoft Networks - that one was added?
If it's already installed, please remove it also, and then re-install it after you have installed your Network Adapter -- if there are any other protocols installed, you really shouldn't need them.
Also, when you restart the computer and you're prompted for the New Hardware, please make sure that you only install the Adapter software for your new adapter; do not re-install the old (inbuilt) network adapter software.
If there's anything else, or if I didn't answer clear enough, please let me know. I really don't mind, as it's better to be safe than sorry here.
