I previously used Linksys PCMPC100 until the "tail" broke on my coupler, so I tried the PCM200. I spent 2 days with 5 different techs from Linksys trying to install the PCM200 with Windows 98 without success. I even spoke with a Linksys supervisor that pretty much admitted they didn't know what they were doing. I also spent an hour on the phone with my OEM who also wasn't able to help me install. I returned the Linksys PCM200 for Netgear FA511, which I was able to install myself in 5 minutes. I'm not sure whether Linksys has a bad product or just bad tech support, but for me Netgear was a much better buy.
