Ok right now i have 2 pc's hooked up to a linksys router...my sister has one here she occasionally plays on and its dial out. Well we wanted to add hers to the router, so she found , what we think to be a ethernet card, and put it in. But nothing happened on reboot and it only shows tci/ip dial up adapters in the network neighborhood window not the ethernet. she is running win 98.
