Trying to get Ethernet for your Webplayer and keep hitting a brick wall?
Get the LinkSys USB100M Ethernet adaptor. $40 at Circuit City (might be cheaper online)
I have tried this adaptor in 8 different Webplayers and it has worked FLAWLESSLY with everyone of them.
The adaptor must be plugged in BEFORE the unit is powered on to be properly seen, but it survived reboots / shutdowns / hibernations without dropping off the network or flaking out in any way.
Yes it costs a little more that some of the other USB solutions out there, but it works for 100% which was all I really wanted in the first place.
Also if you want to go Wireless, the DELL WIFI cards that keep showing up on eBay in the $50 range work famously in Win98 and WinME.
I got one and have set my Webplayer up as a wireless access point for when my friends come over and want to get on my network with there laptops.
