windows 98. Will it work??

:?: Hi everyone, could anyone tell me if I need to upgrade from Win.98 to at least Win.98SE on a P3 450Mhz very old computer to work BB with the plusnet supplied modem, or would it be best to get the router (but I have no ethernet connection).
TIA Derek.

The drivers require Win98SE so you will need to upgrade. Don't be tempted to upgrade to WinMe if you can't find an 98SE upgrade, that would be a backwards step!

Hi,

I'd say unless you want to upgrade pick up a network card with Win 98 drivers and go for a router. I don't think you can get the 98SE upgrade CD's anymore but it might be worth looking at www.microsoft.com/uk
