I have a Toshiba Satellite 1715 XCDS Laptop. Its only a 600Mh with 192 RAM. Everything was fine when it had XP. Then I had to go and take it off to put 98 on. I can't increase the memory any more, so I was trying to use the ram the best I could. After a few weeks of toture, I finally got it wiped and reformatted. I installed 98, and have been trying to upgrade IE-4, and the drivers. I can't get it to recognize the ethernet port or a PCMICA card I have for the ethernet cable. Until I do, I can't even download IE6, cause it keeps telling me my conection may be too slow. The card I'm trying to get to work is a Realtek 8139, it has the R-45 port on it. The laptop has a combo modem, but I can only get the dial up part to work. The ethernet part won't work. That is a Xircom. I also get the yellow exlamation point by the ethernet controller in the device manager. I've searched hi and lo but can't find how to get rid of that. I'm just a mediocre PC user, and this is driving me nuts!! ANy helpful advice would be welcome!!
