Connecting Win98 platform to WinXP Pro platform

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by dancesportboston, Sep 2, 2006.

  1. I have an old Win 98 system that I would like to connect to my new WinXP
    system wirelessly. I have DSL with an 802.11N Router on the new system and
    802.11G card on the old system. What is the best way to connect them so I
    can access the web on both computers?

    I am no expert, but I was in that same situation a year ago and the only way
    I found to solve the problem was to install Netbeui on the network PCs.
    That made the Win 98 SE PC connect fine and I think somebody told me it was
    even more secure that way.

    For what it is worth .......
