I've had a D-Link BEFW11S(5?)4 wireless router for about a year or so, works great. I'm typing this from my laptop which is connected wirelessly right now. I also have two desktops, one a fairly new WinXPpro system, wired to the router, and another old PIII550 Win98 box that was the first system I wired to it (with a cable). When directly wired to the router, both desktops worked flawlessly.
I moved the Win98 box to another room, and bought a D-Link DWL-122 to connect it to the internet. After the usual amount of cursing and re-booting, I got it to the point where the USB piece sees the router, and claims it's working, with reasonable strength 70+% BUT no joy in connecting to the internet or to my email.
I'm pretty sure that this is a Windows problem, but I have no idea how to make it talk.
The old 10/100 card is still installed, by the way. Should it be physically removed from the system and uninstalled? I still see it in the "Network" part of Control Panel.
Thanks in advance for your help.
