I've installed a linksys network adapter card in a Toshiba Satellite
4090CDS laptop running Windows 98SE. When I boot up I get the message
"successful WSAStartup not yet performed" and no internet connection.
Linksys say this has nothing to do with their product but is a Winsock
problem. Any thoughts on how a non-very tech-savvy person could solve
I should add that the particular laptop ran a linksys adapter
successfully before. Then, when it was on loan, someone very small
pulled out the card and broke it. I tried using another (cheaper) card
which I couldn't get to work on it (though it's working fine on my Dell
Inspiron 8500 with Windows XP). So I installed the linksys card from my
dell onto the Inspiron and came up with this WSA Startup problem.
What I've tried:
I've uninstalled the network adapters, run winsockfix and reinstalled the Linksys card. After I ran winsockfix I thought I had succeeded - the message didn't come up when I rebooted. Then when I installed the Linksys card up it came again.
Any help really appreciated.
