Re: LAN internet connection problem in COMPAQ V 3000...
Just connect the lan cable from the modem port saying "DataIn" to your laptop, select Automaticaly detect IP setting and let it assign via DHCP. Once it gains the ip (usually 3-4 minutes) use any java enabled browser (like ie,mozilla firefox) and go to any site it will automatically redirect you to Tata Indicom login terminal and fill in the required blanks and you are connected to the internet.

Try doing a direct LAN connection ( a cable) between your PC and your router instead of wifi. Does that keep an internet connection?
if so check the antenna on the adapter is firmly connected and pointing upward, and less than 15 metres from your router.
this works exactly as like a built in LAN adapter to your laptop. You may use this as a backup for your built in laptop LAN adapter. Altough this is more useful for some IT professionals who sometimes require a two LAN setup. I have also attached a useful guide that if found on the product catalogue itself.
WHAT THIS PRODUCT DOES Connect to your wired home network by adding a D-Link 10/100 Fast Ethernet Notebook Adapter to your notebook computer. Once connected, you can access shared documents, music, and photos from other computers in your network. If your network has a high-speed Internet connection, you can also check e-mail, browse the web, and chat with friends and family online.
click on tools on internet explorer at the top, go to internet options, clikc on connection tab, click on LAN settings, and uncheck proxy settings nad click ok. then refresh the page and check if you are online.
1- Try setting your own DNS server settings, right click on your network connection > properties > TCPIP v4 > edit DNS settings ( use dyndns.com as a dns for example). 2- Try refreshing your DNS cache: start > run > cmd > and type: ipconfig /flushdns
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
