Did you turn off your wireless antenna by accident? The on-off switch for Wireless LAN is located on your computer's right hand side - if that's turned off, both wireless and bluetooth will cease to detect any signals or connections.

>Check your computer's wireless capability >First, make sure there is a blue light on the wireless indicator on your laptop >If it's not lit look for the wireless switch somewhere on the computer's sides >Now that the wireless light is lit press Fn+F5 to enable wireless capability >try to detect wireless networks

The wireless configuration is set differently on routers, eg the SSID, and encryption. You need to configure the wireless LAN card in the laptop to connect/communicate with the different routers.
Some wireless LAN card allow you to setup different profiles/settings for different wireless routers. Eg one setting for the office and one for home, which allows easy connection to the Internet by selecting the appropriate profile/setting.
if you want wired, 5 cable (network cable) just plug it into any of the open LAN port.
right click on "my netwokr" >>properties
right click on "Local Area Network">>properties
select Internet Protocol TCP/IP>>properties
select "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically"
select apply and OK, exit
if you ae going to use wireless, open the wireless setting in the control panel, follow the instruction and select the wireless network. enter the pass key. (if you have one.)
If not done allready, setup the lan IP address and default gateway in win98 Click MyComputer-ControlPanel-Network-Double Click TCP/IP Adapter for your 3com device-insert LAN info for IP Adress-subnet mask, Gateway and your Internet service providors DNS Addresses info Tab's (3x different Tabs "IP Adress" "Gateway" "DNS Configuration")
IP Adress will be at least one number higher than your gateway address and not allready being used by other PC's on your network and gateway address will same as your router interface address subnet mask will be the same for all PC's on your network.
For 3com and Netgear routers LAN setup is usually
Gateway = 192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0
IP Adress = 192.168.1.10(choose alternate number than 10 if allready used by another PC on your network, try to use round numbers, must be a number higher than 1)
Once all info is entered click OK (this may trigger a database info update message and task)now your LAN is setup and ready to talk to your network
Restart PC and try browsing again. May possibly require reinstallation of the TCP/IP client (you double clicked this to setup your LAN in Win98) or reinstallation of the IIS(Internet Information Services)component found in, Add/Remove Programs-Add/Remove windows components and then try LAN setup again if this does not work first time round
