|well, i am so mixed up on this thing about getting the adapter to working, and i am just takeing up to much of your time with this. i will tell you where i am after the last 2 days.|
i have your program on cd. when it opens, i get a menue, including, instal. when i install, it goes thru installation, ends with a "thank you".
i shut down, plug adapter in, and start up. no bling of adapter, no nothing, computer just starts up. i click the icon on desktop to open, i get a message, "plug your adapter in". i unplug, then plug again. nothing i can do, gets the adapter recognised. i search for more things to do than i can set and write about, but nothing i do gets the adapter to running when i plug it in.
i even went to driverguide.com, and search for some kind of chip, that would enable the computer to recognise the adapter, and it run. i found one, RT2500USB.zip, that a lot of info i am hearing to make the adapter run on windows 98 se. It makes no difference wheather i have that, or not. it don't
i may end up with the one dave is talking about from Compaq, but i want do that, until i know i want have the same type problems with that i do with this. i may even go by Best Buy and ask them something. Like i had said in beginning of this,work on windows 98 se, that is is just a project that i would like to solve without spending a lot of money on, but i will keep working with it.
Dave, you don't have a copy, or something i could use to put on the computer, rather than windows 98 se? i have disk i made for windows xp, to use on my other computer. can i use those disk to put on this computer? just asking.
if you have an idea on any of this,you all, let me know. i do not want to keep bothering you with all this. One more thing i would like to ask in this post.....somewhere withen this thread, i posted an example of the procedure i used for deleting all the windows on the drive, and installing the new windows 98 se disk. my mind is not good at remembering things, and am already finding myself unable to remember all of what we done, like, i cannot even remember at what point i put the FORMAT C:. i want to make me a copy of that procedure, but i cannot remember the steps. just a simple list of steps would be appreciated. I APPRECIATE, YOU.
