I have them connected now thank you. The computer store gave me the wrong cable. I needed crossover and they gave me 568.e cat.5e
I now need to know how if I have to put the cable modem into the system with win 98se or can I share through the win98 system that it is connected to. I really do not want to remove the card and switch if I do not have to since the win98 system is configured to work on my connection at my place of work.
