    yes it has a network card and was working fine before the new wirless router was hooked up. This pc is hard wired to the wireless router with a wire . I plan on using the wired connection on this pc with windows 98.

    Does The Win98 PC have a network card? If so, are the proper drivers loaded for it? Are you planning on using wireless or wired connection?

In control panel, find the network applet and double click it. in the white box, locate TCP/IP(Internet Protocol) and select that, then click properties

Make sure you're set to DHCP which should, once you're physically connected to your router, obtain an IP address and DNS server addresses automatically

There are different options to diagnose the problem. Either:

Networking Issues


Problem: Network Cable Unplugged

Description: Don’t take this message literally - there are many causes besides not having a cable physically plugged into the network card. The message really means that the network card doesn’t detect a live link to another device on the other end of the cable.

Possible Solutions:
Download and install the latest network card driver program.
Check the cabling - a bad cable will prevent link detection. Substitute a cable that’s known to be good.
Check the link lights on the device on the other end of the cable, whether it’s a hub, switch, router, or a NIC in another computer. It should show a live link to the NIC. If it doesn’t, try a different port.
Auto-detecting speed and duplex mode can be unreliable. Set them manually. Most routers and switches use 100Mb, full duplex. Hubs can only use half duplex.
Problem: Renewing a DHCP lease fails, with error message “An error occurred while renewing interface <name>: The system cannot find the file specified.”

Problem: Network connection configured to obtain an IP address automatically has IP address 0.0.0.0

Solution: Make sure that the DHCP Client service is running:
Right click My Computer, and click Manage.
Double click Services and Applications.
Double click Services.
Double click DHCP Client. If the Service status is Stopped, click Start.
Set the Startup type to Automatic.

Problem: Network Connection Has IP Address 169.254.x.x
Description: The network card is configured to obtain an IP address automatically, and it’s connected to a network with a DHCP server: hardware router, another computer running Internet Connection Sharing, cable modem, DSL modem, etc. But it gets a 169.254.x.x IP address, which indicates that it can’t communicate with the DHCP server:

Possible Solutions:
Connect the computer using a different Ethernet cable or hub/switch/router port.
Download and install the latest firmware for the hardware router.
Disable XP’s Internet Connection Firewall <../xp/ic_firewall.htm> on the local area network connection.
The card is configured to automatically sense network speed and duplex mode, but auto-sensing is failing. Configure the speed and duplex mode manually. For example, most switches and routers use 100 Mb speed and full duplex. To make the settings, right click the network connection and click Properties | Configure | Advanced.
Un-install the network card and move it to a different slot.
If you have a cable modem connection, turn off the computer, turn off the cable modem, and wait a few minutes. Turn on the cable modem, and then turn on the computer.

Error Message: An error has occurred while trying to share <filename>. The Server service is not started. The shared resource was not created at this time.

Solution:
To start the Server service:

Right click My Computer and select Manage.
Double click Services and Applications.
Double click Services.
Scroll down the list of services and double click Server.
Click the Start button.
Set the Startup type to Automatic.
Click Apply and OK.
Problem: Computer A Can Ping Computer B, but not Vice Versa
Solution: This is almost always caused by an improperly configured firewall on Computer A.

Problem: One Computer Can’t Access Some Web Sites, but Other Computers Can

Solution: Look for the Windows Hosts file on the problem computer:
Windows 95/98/Me: C:\Windows\Hosts
Windows 2000: C:\WinNT\System32\Drivers\Etc\Hosts
Windows XP: C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc\Hosts
Open it with a text editor and you'll probably find lines with the names of the sites that you can't access. Delete those lines, save the file, and try again. If those are the only lines in the file, delete the file. Be sure to save it with a file name of just Hosts, with no file type. If your editor saves it as Hosts.txt, rename it to just Hosts.
The Hosts file can be created by "web accelerator" programs that store name-to-IP address translations. This might speed up access by a tiny amount, but it causes problems when a site's IP address changes.


Problem: A shared disk or folder doesn’t appear in My Network Places

Description: The disk or folder is shared correctly on another computer, but it doesn’t appear.
Solution 1: Click Add a network place and follow the prompts to add it. Browse to it through Entire Network, or specify the path name using the form \\computer\share.
Solution 2: Click View workgroup computers, then click the computer that has the shared disk or folder.

Problem: XP's Network Setup Wizard Says That No Network Card Is Installed

Solution: XP's Network Setup Wizard sometimes fails to recognize an installed and working network card. This is because the NIC's driver program doesn't respond correctly to all of the queries that the Wizard makes when it's looking for a NIC. Configure the card’s TCP/IP properties manually. Here’s how to do it for Windows 95/98/Me <../ics/icsclient.htm>, Windows 2000 <../ics/ics_win2k_client.htm>, and Windows XP <../xp_ics/clientwiz.htm>. Then set the workgroup name to MSHOME.


Problem: Windows XP takes a long time to open a shared disk or folder on a computer running Windows 95, 98, or Me

Description: This is a different problem than My Network Places taking a long time to open <slowbrowse02.htm>. This problem occurs after you double click a shared disk or folder.
Possible Solutions:

Try:
sudo route add default gw ROUTER.IP.ADDRESS
Replace ROUTER.IP.ADDRESS with the address of your network router. If you don't know what this is, do the following in Windows XP:
Start -> Run -> cmd.exe
ipconfig
(look for "Default Gateway", and write down the four numbers - usually something like 192.168.1.254 - that's what you should use for "ROUTER.IP.ADDRESS" above).

This will fix it for your current session - to make it permanent, open up the network configuration window in Ubuntu, and set this as your gateway under "IPv4 settings" (or similar).

Windows 98 changing from dialup to high speed


You can do this, but I would not recommend it. Windows 98 is very susceptible to malware. You can get things just by going to the wrong website. These are called drive by downloads. It will get very slow from all of the malware running on the system very fast.

Look into downloading a Linux distribution like Ubuntu, or PCLinuxOS. You will be able to find a linux distro that will fit on your old computer and be very secure. Look at Distrowatch for many more options.

It is not possible to use Windows 98 on the Internet and remain secure. If you post the model/serial number of the compaq computer, or its stats then we could tell you if you can upgrade it to XP or Windows 2000, but this may not be practical on older equipment.
