ADSL via Network Card : Win9x Installation of Network card

If you are connecting to your ADSL modem via a Network card, then there a few items
to check / watch when installing this network card BEFORE installing the ADSL-software itself,
for Windows95/98/ME (there is a
different setup for Windows2000) :

Standalone system (with a network card to connect to other systems via LAN):

You will most probably have already
a modem (to connect to the Internet),
for which you should have already the
following components defined in the
Properties of "Network":
- Client for Microsoft Networks
-
Dial-Up Adapter (for your modem)
-
TCP/IP protocol
Install the Network card (an old ISA card
on Win95/98
or ME or a PCI-card).

Then check the new Network-
configuration.







For the new network card, which you
will use to connect to the ADSL-modem,
check the settings of the
TCP/IP-
protocol
For the network card, connecting the system
to the ADSL-modem, make sure to
"obtain an IP-address automatically".




System already with a network card (connected to a LAN):

You will most probably have already
a modem (to connect to the Internet)
in addition to your LAN configuration
for which you should have already the
following components defined in the
Properties of "Network":
- Client for Microsoft Networks
-
Dial-Up Adapter (for your modem)
- a Network card for the LAN
-
TCP/IP protocol
- File-and-Printer Sharing
Install the Network card (an old ISA card
on Win95/98
or ME or a PCI-card).

Then check the new Network-
configuration.




Check the Properties of the
TCP/IP protocol for the network
card connecting the system to the LAN:
Make sure that you use now
"
Specified IP addresses".

if you have only Windows98, 98SE
or WindowsME systems on your
network, you may have used the
Automatic IP-address Generation,
but since your system has now
2 network cards installed, you can
NOT use anymore the
Automatic IP-address
Generation, you MUST assign manually
the IP-addresses on all systems on the
LAN network !

For the network card, connecting the system
to the ADSL-modem:

tab: IP-address, make sure to
"obtain an IP-address automatically"
in the Properties of the
TCP/IP protocol.
tab: Bindings

un-check the binding for
"File-and-Printer Sharing" !
You are connecting via this network card
to the Internet and need to prevent
access from the Internet to your disk !

You are now ready to install the ADSL connection software.
