trouble configuering network..


Have been trying get my network to work but were not able to fix it.
I don't know what i'm doing wrong had it working with a winxp but not now when i running a win98.

This is what i have to work with:

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbs p;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&n bsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;<win98>
<Internet (lan)> --> <d-link de805tp>{
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbs p;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&n bsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;<mdk92>

nothing works no Internet, no network.. but it works separately when only the Internet plug is connected..

<Internet (lan)> --> <mdk92>




PS.
have been surfing around linuxquestions but couldn't find anything that answered my questions..

that is a confusing post.

If it works when you have the Internet plug connected, but not the network plug, are you using a modem or two NIC's???

Other then that, if you are using Windows 98 I think that you are asking this question on the wrong board. How ever, what you probably have is a newer card (made well after 1998) and 1998 has no clue what it is. What you need to do is to go download the drivers from the manufactures website.

sorry if it was confusing.. the thing is, earlier when the other computer was an winxp (which was my dad's) it worked fine. I have not changed anything in the configuration on my linux dist only that i have another computer to link up.. a one with win98 instead of winxp.

I don't know where to begin.. is it another configuration needed for a win98 to work with linux or is it the hub.. or should i change the network card configuration on my linux dist to work with the hub..

before it worked just fine to use the hub.. but now nothing works when i have my mdk92 linked trough a hub to internet and a win98..
