Streamyx Installation on Win 98
Hi .. my computer is a bit old, using Window 98. I tried to install Streamyx via its Installation CD & I have failed with " Protocol Not Installed " remark. The connections are all okay, ie. from the telecom line to the splitter, to the modem & direct to the PC via network card.
Any one can advise me on this meaning, please.
Note: I dun have much knowledge on computer
Why not access the router directly using the browser , IE , Firefoxes , Netscape or others. After you have set the network card correctly , just type the ip address of the router and you'll get a response from it. The router address should be available from the manual. Get into the router using default user n password and tinker from there.
Look at the connection status , username n password of your streamyx account n go on. Sounds easy ...right..??
The protocol not install may be refering to the TCPIP protocol for the network card.
You need to go into Network connections and then 'add protocol' > tcp/ip. The router cannot be accessed if tcp/ip protocol is not installed. Once installed you will then have to install your network card > router/modem.

Hi lxwong & CCY,
Boleh tolong sikit ah ?
Can you please tell me the steps ?
I betul betul 'blur' la pasal computer.
Thanx a lot, a lot ......
First of all ....install the driver for your network card.
Then....from the start button , run your mouse to settings ..
.....go into control panel and doubleclick on the 'Network' icon...
.....if you have install the network card driver , you would have a TCP/IP Ethernet setting listed for the respective adapter..
.....click on the TCP/IP for the respective ethernet adapter..
.......click on 'properties'..
........enable the 'Obtain an IP address automatically' by ticking on the box..
If you're able to get into the above you should be able to install the streamyx connection from the cd. Alternatively you can access the router through the browser.
I will try this option later, after sucessfull installation.

You can also check using the Device manager to see if it has a network adapter installed n working...

I think it has got to do with TM where they put in the latest drivers which is not supported on Win 98.
I do not use the TM provided installation as well while running on win98. It may have some quirks on win98 which I'm not aware.

I presume other brand of router would have their unique IP addresses to work that way.
I am still unable to install it.
The caption 'Connectivity Network Fail' & their Customer Care Line Officer suspected that either the splitter / filter is faulty, or perhaps the line is not stable. They have lodged a report for me.
What a 'wonder-fool' week. Have to send the PC to put in the Network card, re-format the whole PC (due to window's problem) & some small repairs here & there ..... And I am still no where
Willi.....few question needs answers
......are you able to see the network adapter in the device manager to be working..
.......are you using a usb router..? presume is ethernet since you mention add network card.
......are you able to set your TCP/IP parameters accordingly in the control panel..
.......important....what is the exact model of your streamyx router..any indication on the panel on link , ppp n dsl status..?
Alamak !!! a bit technical la your questions for me. Anyway, I will try to answer which ever possible.

Managed to set in the TCP/IP, but still having this problem. The orange light (for the link) indicator is blinking slowly & steadily
Hmmmm.....If you take a look at the model type which is likely at the bottom of the unit you should be able to see it.

Also try this , assuming it is the same model of tmnet router that I've seen..
..from your internet explorer , at the address ,type in 192.168.1.1
If you get a response from the streamyx router....then the settings is ok all the way good till the router.
Next would be the link from the router to tmnet's server which if you log in into the router you should be able to see the connection status.
CCY - thanx again.
Guess that I will try that again at night. If managed to get through, I will let you know straight away. Really appreciate your time !!
