Network Configuration (Windows 9x)

To install TCP/IP support, Windows has to copy some core networking files from it's CD to the hard disk. It is extremely important that the version of Windows on the CD that these files are taken from is exactly the same Operating System version and revision that is installed on your computer to avoid conflicts. If you are unsure of the versions, contact your Network Administrator.

  1. Click Start
  2. Select Settings
  3. Select Control Panel
  4. Double click the Network icon with the left mouse button.

  1. Click Add...

  5. Make sure that your Windows CD is in the CD drive and click OK to exit the Network menu.
  6. Windows will copy the files it needs and then prompt you to restart your computer.
