hp vectra vl problem what do i need to connect to broadband an do i need to

By slavemaster ·
i have a hp vectra vL series3 5/120. i tried last time to connect to broadband an i got nowhere. first the modem worked fine but i discovered the disc was for winxp when i downloaded it. it was from timewarner roadrunner cable an it was at that time that i noticed the computer i did not have enough memory. will 16mbs of ram an ethernet card get me going on this speed broadband an do i need to make sure the broadband disc is for win98 only? i did try my usb card in the pci slot but that did not work? so do i need to increase my computer memory from 8mb to 16 in order to use broadband? my computer does have at least 128mb or ram. the problem is i could not connect to broadband why? i'd appericate any help.

Lots More RAM

I am surprised that Windows 98 is even working for you with only 16 MB of RAM.

In order to use a broadband modem and surf the web effectively, I recommend a bare minimum of 128 MB of RAM.

I usually set up Windows 98 systems with 384 MB of RAM.
