How is it that I'm on line with a P200 that Comcast says can't do it?

  1. Hi,

    I put a nic card in my old P200 compaq tonight, with 64 megs of ram in it,
    and connected it to comcast broadband via my router with a cat5 cable.
    Then I set up an internet account and a mail account using outlook express.
    Then I updated win98 at Microsoft's website.

    Here's the funny thing I can't figure out. I went to Comcast's web site,
    and searched to look up what the minimum hardware configuarion was, and
    they said the minimum hardware to connect to their boradband system is a 300
    Mhz CPU and 128 Megs of ram. I'm surfing the net perfectly fine
    with the P 200 and with 64 MB of ram. How can this be?
