    My parents have an actiontec 1524 dsl router. gateway pc/win 98SE.
    All was well Saturday night. Now, they can't get to anything on the Internet.
    IE gives them a server not found error on every page they try. The DSL router shows all connections up and functional. I've had them reboot the pc and power cycle the dsl modem - no help. Under the device manager, everything looks good, the ethernet card shows it is working properly. the manual for the dsl router says to enter to get directly to the dsl router. we still get the sever not found error message.:confused:

    Can you get to a web site via IP address? I would power cycle the router and reboot first and if that doesn't work call your ISP to see if they are having a DNS server issue.

    Sometimes IP addresses get "stuck" on 98 and 98SE systems. To "unstick" them, open a command window (DOS prompt), and type the following:

    ipconfig /release_all
    ipconfig /renew_all

    Let us know if this helps :)
