    Wirless Connection Missing

    At our local senior center we have a wireless network installed that works great with XP. However, we can't seem to get connected with W98. The Wireless NIC is installed. and Device Manager shows it installed and working properly. Also, when the network setup wizard is run it indicates that the network is OK. However, nothing connects! Any suggestions on how to get 98 to recognize the wireless network?

    These instructions are particular to one university's network, but might give you some clues.

    Hi Doc,

    I haven't forgotten you, and I will try out your suggestion. I just haven't had the opportunity to get at the Senior Center's computers the past few days as we have just started up our next 8-week class sessions and the computers are all busy.

    I tried following the sequence of instructions you recommended up to a point -- and I think that's where my problem lies. Looking at my wireless card's Properties | Advanced Tab I do not find an SSID option listed! This, I believe, is where you enter the ID of the wireless router, and that option is missing. I also reached a point where it detected a missing dll and requested me to insert the W98 CD. Unfortunately a class was just starting up and I had to quit at that point. Next week I'll give that a try and see how far I get.
