I have been having trouble running NTL broadband via USB and from what I have read Ethernet is better with Win98. Having acquired a card and installed it I now have problems getting it to work. When trying to reinstall with the NTL CD I get the message "Unable to renew network IP address". I have also tried to proceed without NTL software as per links found on this forum, but no joy. I suppose I shall have to call NTL support, but I thought I would see if anyone had had the same problem here first, as they are so slow. In case anyone wonders, I have gone back to USB for the purpose of this request.
When you tried to change over did you uninstall the USB software first I am on NTL network card on XP but when I first went from USB to card I was on 98SE and it worked fine uninstalled first then installed clicking on ethernet instead of USB
Thanks to you all for your advice. Everything works now. Not properly uninstalling the USB software was part of it, the rest was finger trouble, the instructions on the link were absolutely correct. I offer my usual excuse, advancing years.
