I'm still on dialup and I want to get Roadrunner because that's the only high speed service available here. They came once to install but started
griping about the fact I had Windows 98.
So I wiped my hard drive and installed Windows XP Professional. It works great, pretty smooth, easy install.
Now I'm trying to put in a network card to connect to Roadrunners cable modem. I was told that the USB connection is slower.
Every time I install a card and then turn on the computer the monitor has no signal. One time it even reset my bios and made WinXP not see my modem
Is it wrong to put a network card in a computer that has a modem?
I build computers and upgrade them regularly, but I have no experience with network cards.
Here are the specifics on my computer:
AMD-K6 3D Processor
184 MB RAM
Anyone have any ideas?
