Hey all, first off, that gawd for this forum. You folks are great. I have been browsing around here for the last few months with regards to my i-opener, websurfer, and acer-nt150. You guys are the best source of info I have seen. Congrats!
My question is as follows. I picked up my WebSurfer a couple weeks ago, added a 20GB IBM 2.5" hard drive, got it all installed with Win98. Works great. I have a 3COM 11MB Wireless network I run here at the house with my laptops and I got the I-Opener to run one of the adapters. Seems that I can't get the WebSurfer to work correctly with the wireless NIC.
I wanted to use the onboard ide controller but for some reason, it would not work, I soldered in the pins CAREFULLY and it all looks great but NO GO, so I slapped in an ISA IDE controller. Below that I installed the PCI 3COM wireless nic. Win98 detects the NIC but when you reboot it starts to load and then just reboots.
I go into device manager and I have ?'s next to PCI Bridge and PCI MultiMedia Audio Device. The PCI Bridge has me concerned as to why the NIC isn't working but I can't find any drivers for this damn thing.
Can anyone shed some light with regards to a correct driver set and with regards to if you can use the ISA and PCI slots together at the same time with original bios? Also, where can I find drivers for the video to get more then 16 colors.
Mucho thanks folks. You guys are great.
