Q: Network Connections Appl in Windows 98 O/S

September 3, 2010 at 01:13:45
Specs: Windows 98, P-11, 256 MN
I have Windows 98 OS, which does not have a Control Panel Item - NETWORK CONNECTIONS, which is there for Win-XP (The file name is NetSetup.cpl)

I got a new Broadband Connection, through Cable (using Motorola Modem No
SB 5102i

To use this modem in Win-98 O/S, I need to create a Dailer with Log-in Name
+ Passwork (but no Telephone Number).


Is there an Add-On Software, which can do the same function as Network Setup
application of Win-XP for Windows 98 O/S

Thanks

I haven't looked at 98 since Windows 2000 came out but if memory serves me, there's an icon on the desktop that says "Network Neighborhood". Right click on that, select "Properties" from the pulldown menu and you'll get the 98 version of XP's "network connections".

If you need to create a new dialup connection, go to Start >> Programs >> Accessories

Look through what's availabe there, somewhere in there, or under one of the submenus, is an applet that allows you to create a new dialup connection. If I'm remembering right......like I say, it's been ages.

Not to be too critical but, it is probably time you dumped the old 98 box and replaced it with something that can run XP.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
