I've never had any problems with Win98SE either. Worked like a charm, it took me a lot of courage to switch to XP Pro. But now that I'm settled in have to say I like XP Pro features much better.

I am the same way, but I still detest the way XP wants to automate everything for me. I like an operating system to do only what I tell it.

What kind of cable modem are you using ? Windows doesn't even know I have a cable modem. I have had RaodRunner cable in Kansas and Comcast here in Denver. Never had any Windows/Cable Modem problems at all.

98 works just fine on my cable modem. None of the above on the poll vote.

I am using Win 98 SE with my cable modem and never had a crash as a result of the modem. Windows itself does not drive your modem directly but your ethernet card through which the modem is connected to the computer. So if you're experienced any problem, you might need to update your ethernet card driver Or look at other component conflicts.

Also one needs to understand windows networking is not optimized by default for high speed internet, but for dial up. To significantly increase your internet performance, you need to implement certain reg tweaks. You could either do them manually if you feel comfortable editing your registry or you could use special utility to implement the tweaks. Either way, to get a cable modem to perform better on win 98SE , one needs to optimize the networking components for high speed internet.

I've had no trouble at all with Cable and Win 98SE. It runs GREAT. It might have more to do with your hardware if you are experiencing problems.

So...I can't vote on this topic cuz I've experienced neither of those problems due to my cable connection.
