I put the new card in my old 98 computer and it tells me to connect the WOL Cable but I can't find where to connect it? I want to connect to the internet through my new ATT DSL but it will only let me connect through my dial up. Is there something I have to do or do I have to get a new mother board so I can connect?
I am lost, please help.

the WOL cable is for Wake On Lan capability with the NIC card...the instructions should tell you where to connect it to the NIC card...and you may have to find a manual for your motherboard to see where to connect it there...you SHOULD be able to disable wake on lan in the bios and/or the settings of the NIC card within windows which should make it stop asking about the WOL cable

I don't have any manuals for the computer so I am lost there. When I tried to change the setting for the bios it wouldn't let me, maybe I am doing something wrong. Please help.

says the cable isn't neccessary (which i knew) have you tried completely removing the WOL cable from the card? i would assume by their description that this is possible...
