    Glad you got it working!

    ETHERDFS uses custom frames that don't seem to work over wireless bridges, so you'll need to connect both source and destination with wired cable.

    Remember reenigne's rules of optimization:

    1. Speed is roughly measured in number of I/Os, including the instruction opcode bytes.

    Yes, but literally any laptop made in the last 4 years, no matter the price, can also play those. Why limit yourself to a P4 laptop?

    Did you try? I thought 3c5x9cfg did actually work on an 8088, but I could be wrong. If the program starts up, that should be enough, although you might want to remove other non-essential cards...

    It's slightly better, in that the keyboards can someday be reunited with their host systems.

    Sorry, my mistake; I have trouble telling various sects of deskthority people apart.

    The wrong IRQ setting has the property of the packet driver software not being notified of new packets arriving. Once you switch the IRQ to 7 or lower, the card should work.

    Also, do your initial...

    You see no replies because, based on your screenshot, your network card is set to IRQ 10 -- but 8088-class systems can't go that high, they can only go as high as 7. Common IRQ assignments are:

    Don't buy any system you're not prepared to spend 20 hours and $100 troubleshooting. There are other portable 486s out there, likely for cheaper.

    If you have any VGA card made before 1992, chances are very high it will work in an 8-bit slot.

    There was a list/wiki/post on this forum at one point that listed cards found to be compatible, but...

    This changed for us a few years ago -- the HD voice when talking to family who are using devices and plans that support the standard is *way* better than land line quality. It's a combination of...

    Thanks for the pictures. They show obvious scaling, so the problem is that the resolution isn't set properly, regardless of what the driver is telling you. Try a different/better/updated driver. ...

    Switching to an EGA card would allow you to use the same 5153 monitor, and the blinking chars on scrolling would cease. You'd also gain access to 320x200x16 modes which are good for games that don't...

    Most people create a new cable that handles the power requirements properly; then they can use any normal 3.5" DSDD drive. I believe vwestlife did a video on making the cable?

    I'm surprised people haven't mentioned the XIRCOM PE3 yet. It's a parallel-port ethernet adapter that works well (it's a mainstay of the PCjr hobbyist community).
