I am failing in my efforts to use a Speedtouch 330 USB modem to connect to the internet via Broadband from an 'old' PC running Windows ME that was upgraded from Windows 98 First Edition. I am being told that Windows 98 First Edition (and ME if upgraded from it as opposed to a fresh install) will not connect via Broadband due to certain Registry settings and that I have only three options - Fresh install of ME - I cannot face all the backing-up & reinstallingi nvolved! Upgrade to 2000 - cost & unsupported path! Network my two PCs (I have one running XP) - cost & effort! Am I being informed correctly? (from Internet scanning I suspect not!) - If not what do I do? - Is there another way of safely amending/correcting the Registry settings?
