I want to add my old machine to my router. My new machine uses XP and is connected to a netgear router which is connected to my cable modem. I have purchased the network adapter and cable (CAT5) for the Win98 machine. How do I get it to connect to the network now.

install network card into the machine plug patch lead
into network card and router if your router is dhcp it will automatically assign an ip adress to your pc
and give you net access

to set up file and printer sharing etc run the network wizard on xp (make sure you have a floppy disk to hand to run it on win 98)


good luck

how can i check the setting of dhcp?

  Devil Fish 08:55 01 Dec 2005

when you have plugged everything in go to the dos prompt on win 98 in the black box type ipconfig/all

in the list it gives you you should have your ip adress and further down dhcp server adress

  Tee07 09:03 01 Dec 2005

the IP address says 0.0.0.0 The subnet mask says 0.0.0.0
the dhcp server is 255.255.255.255

try the xp machine click start then run in the box type cmd then in the black box ipconfig/all see what you get

(the reson for this is to accertain wether it is the router or the machine)

dhcp is on

ok a few things to check 1st off are drivers installed for network card on win 98 machine

check the cable you are using is a patch cable and not a crossover cable

when thats done go to control panel then network connections

right click on the connection select properties

highlight tcp/ip then select propeties

i dont remember win 98 layout to well but you should be looking for

obtain ip adress automatically

and obtain dns automatically

make sure these are selected then try again
post back to let us know if it works or not
