Dear Ditditong,

First is your wifi switch on the compaq enabled. It is suppose to be lighted and an icon on the task bar will tell you it is.

Second, check your Wifi OS set-up if properly done ; if not use the windows wizard to accomplish this.

Third, Make sure your D-link has been properly set-up for wireless set-up to be able for you to access the router. The manual might have information along this line.

As you mentioned, your Compaq Presario MV520 is using Windows 98 OS. As we all know, dial-up connection is the only available internet connection at that time so obviously Win 98 has dial-up LAN connection. However, you wanted to have wireless connection on that PC so you need to install a wireless adapter to that PC. First of all, most wireless adapters that are being used for desktop PC are wireless USB adapter, so you need to have a USB port on that PC. And also, you will need to check if the software for the wireless adapter will be accepted by the PC because since the PC is using Win 98 OS, we are not sure if the firmware of the wireless adapter will be compatible to the PC. Basically, my answer would be not possible.

Well it should work on all the computers.
There might be some problem with the wireless connection.
You said the wireless works on all the other computers . that means the wireless router is working fine.
If your wireless network is secured then make sure that you have the correct network key / password.
Check the IP address on your wireless computer . Is there any static IP address on the computer.

Losing internet connection when enabling ICS on the wireless network connection

Do not enable ICS on any of the computers that are connected to a router regardless if it's wired or wireless, you only need to enable ICS is if you don't have a router/server on your network(the purpose of a router is to share a single internet connection from your ISP). To connect your computer wirelessly to the router(on a Windows XP computer given that you do not have a 3rd party Wi-fi application installed) is to right click on wireless network connection on the System Tray(lower right hand side of the computer's Desktop near where the clock is) or you can do it the hard way by going to Control Panel then Network Connections and choose view available wireless network and under the list of available network that your computer can detect, select the network name(also called SSID) of your wireless router and try to connect(of course if you enabled Wi-fi security you also need to key-in the security key(WEP/WPA) you configured on your router and that's it both wired and wireless computer/devices connected to the router should work at the same time.
