    I bought an old computer ( Intel 600mhz processor, 358 meg ram, 10gig hd )
    so I can receive wireless internet radio in my basement shop. It came with
    Win98SE and I successfully installed my MN-710 wireless on it and it worked
    fine.

    I decided to install Win ME on the computer as a small upgrade. But, I
    cannot get the MN-710 to install under ME. I have the disk for the MN-710
    and it goes thru the install routine up to the step where it will try to
    connect with my D-Llink router. It asks me to connect my MN-710 and instead
    of looking for my D-Link ( showing available connections and accepting the
    network security key ), it just dies/goes away. No lockup or anything...it
    just goes away.

    I have reinstalled WinME, and the MN-710 software several times and the
    result is the same. I can sometimes get the network icons on the menu bar,
    but I am not connected to the internet.

    I also did an install of XP Home and everything worked fine.

    The MN-710 box says it works for Win ME.

    I really want to use ME since it loads faster on the older computer.

    What am I doing wrong/ what can I do?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
