The Nokia Handsets uses Slow IR and if your Windows is configured to use Fast IR you can expect troubles.

From the Bios settings have the IR Settings ( Most probably in Integrated Device Settings )  to use SLow IR.

You may as well find an alternate Setting in the Device Manager. Expand the IR Device and Right Click on the Setting and Left click Properties. In the advanced settings you may find the turn-around time. From 4Mbps change it to 9600kbps and also have the Transponder setting changed to use IBM. These settings are seen in WinXp. Not sure in Win98. Anyways You can give it a Try. Hope this Helps.

Cheers

Infrared with DSL?

Are you sure?  DSL .....how are you sending via dsl?  

does the desktop have an Infrared port?  
What cell fone is it?
I dont think any DSL modems have Infrared on them.

You need to make sure your system has DSL Capabilities.  Please come back with some specifics. What kind of computer, some of the parts that are in it, and more specific information about infrared ports that you may have or drivers you've installed etc.

Laptops have Infrared generally, but not desktops. Try finding a cell phone USB cable for your Cell Phone to connect directly to your computer. I know all Nokia phones have this specialty cable available.

Hope this helps,

Yeah, the laptop will most likely have infrared that you can set up to communicate with your phone. Your phone manufacturers may make a USB cable so you can connect it to your desktop.

Well, the main question still exits, do you have Infra red on your DESKTOP machine?  Give us some more of your computer hardware specs.

And what software are you using with your Nokia 3650 to send via Infrared?

You can use an external IR adapter to be connected to a USB adapter. Windows 98 will recognize that adapter and you will be able to surf the Internet:

You should consider using Blue Tooth as well...
