Using Infrared Connections

Infrared light is below the spectrum of red light and is not visible to the human eye. Recently, the use of this light spectrum has moved beyond the world of television and VCR remote controls and into the realm of computers. New infrared (IR) ports on computers allow wireless connections between computers and devices. Windows 98 supplies software supporting IR ports on notebooks and desktops. Although IR ports are still not a common communication medium for computers and computer peripherals, the very latest computers do ship with these ports. On a computer with an IR port, Windows 98 lets you share files and resources, communicate to networks, and even print to other computers and peripherals with IR ports.

Unless Windows 98 finds an IR port on your PC during the installation process, it will not install the IR component of the operating system. If, for some reason, your computer features an IR port but Windows 98 did not install the IR software, you can load the software manually from the installation disc.
