Today i have just bought a fairly newish laptop off my friend. just there now i have tried to install NTL broadband (1MB) onto it. the process seems to go all right until it is aquiring me a new ip address and it say "failed you have one network adapter set to DCPH" or sumthing like that. n e 1 have n e ideas how to get the broadband working on it.

O/S is Win 98
700mhz intel Processor
64Mb Of ram

Thanks

i may be wrong but i suspect that your spec is too low for it to run, i stand to be corrected by others more wiser though.

when i go to install it it says "you have passed the minimum requirements for the installation"

Have you registered the MAC address of the laptop with NTL? I'm not sure if NTL needs this; Blueyonder does.

No NTL just stick in the disc and it installs but the laptop wont aquire the ip adress.
