ETHERNET HOOKUP QUESTION........

OK, this is out of my leagye, I had a Gateway Celieron ( ? ) given to us with Wins 98. It is a funky thing, all built in one unit, ( pc and screen ). It has a regular telephone hookup connection and a bunch of USB ports.

My problem is, I have a ethernet hook up coming off of all the ports. Is there anyway to make this damn thing work ?

I want to put it downstairs for the kids to play on.

You can get an Ethernet adapter that plugs into the USB ports, but they have a tendency to not work. You can buy an Ethernet card to put in the computer for $5 at Microcenter or Compusa. If you watch for rebates sometimes you can get them for free.

OK, I'm a dummy when it comes to the internal end of these things. The card you speak of, does it like switch the plugin out ?

Would Radio Shack have this adapter you speak of ?

It sounds like he's talking about the Gateway Profile (think "PC version of the iMac"). If it is, there is no putting anything inside it. IIRC, it seems like one or two of the later Profiles had a PC card slot, but other than that, USB would have to do.

Roy, if you can find the serial number on it (probably starts with 001 or 002), PM me and I'll look into it.

OK, this is it.......

GW S/N 1096078900
SEC S/N 4141K4601700
GW P/N 3500600 BAL.3

I know the mouse hooked into the keyboard and the keyboard hooke into the side USB port.

On the back is a mouse and a keyboard USB port, plus the phone port.

The gateway keypad went bad, I have to use the mouse port and the side port for the keyboard.

I have a bad hunch the keyboard port in the back is not going to work for an ethernet/USB hookup.

No, Russ, it's much worse than that. It's an Astro, not a Profile:



Roy, a USB adapter is going to be your only option. Try this link:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833164118

This is the one that Darkwolfe uses in his PC repair business for troubleshooting, and he said he's never had any problems with it.
