Message Forwarded From BobButler

:tazz: It has been a good while since I been back online.  I have a windows 98 at home and I want to hook up dsl to it, but there is no ethernet connection on the computer.  Can I add one to it? If so, how?

first find out what kind of expansion slots you have and then find a network card with the interface and that says it supports windows 98. Put in the card and install the driver. Then contact the dsl service and have them set you up. In fact you might be able to have them do the whole thing.

Just about any NIC that uses PCI should be available for use with Win98..

I agree - should be. It's a matter of drivers so I would check to make sure it supports before buying. Also with no details of the computer other than win98 it could be a machine without pci ( now that would be old ) :tazz:
