Net Problems
Hey peeps, not a comp n00b or nothing but have a little problem regarding my internet. Here goes : I have a Dell Dimension from 2001 so it is designed for use with Windows 98 SE - Windows 2000, but I am using XP which runs abit slow-performance wise but the internet runs faster than in 98-2k. Just wondering why this could be, any help appreciated. Thank you.

I.e. Windows 98/2k - 350 kbps download speed
Windows XP - 550 - 600 kbps

Also my connection is 10 mbps. Thanks again. :)

Well, with Windows Xp the inner workings of the operating system itself have been reworked so that has something to do with that I am sure. Windows 98 was just a horrible OS altogether. Slow, buggy and insecure. Win2k is still decent I use it on another computer still. XP has came a long way on performance, so I am not surprised at a gain in network speed.

Win 98?Still use it???Better change to XP...because 98 is use for stand alone PC..not for network.
