    wasn't sure if this is meant to be in networking or here (applications). please move this to the right place if it causes problems.

    basically, the problem is that i get one of those exclamation marks on WAN Miniport (IPX) #2.

    it says "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)"

    what is it (the device) and do i need it? im networking xp pro with windows 98.

    Yes, you need it. Right click on the device with the exclamation, go to properties, click on the Driver tab and click on update driver. You'll be asked to insert the Windows CD or be connected to the web for the latest driver.
