this is driving me nuts
I have windows vista desktop(ethernet) and laptop(wireless) and windows xp(wireless) desktop set up via bt homo hub and all work ok now have got
Belkin Wireless G USB Network Adapter network adapter to try and add my windows 98 desktop to my network can anybody help please?

Microsoft doesn't support File and Printer Sharing between Vista and 98SE

That capability wasn't part of Vista's design, coding, or testing

To the best of my knowledge, no one has found a way to make it work reliably

I wish that I had a better answer for you

98 and XP would work but any thing to do with Vista
would be a problem

would i be able to see the win98 computer from vista if i can ever get the set up right?
