    Hi All,

    I have an Aopen machine running W98 first
    edition on a 200mhz pentium.
    I have copied the whole C: drive over to
    an empty 13gig drive for more space, because I no longer have
    the original W95 CD.
    I booted to a floppy and installed a W98
    upgrade CD. All is well except when I go online it connects
    OK but does not go anywhere? I get the following error messages
    from various programs.
    1. Colud not open a TCP/IP port for listening?
    2. Unable to create a socket?
    3.Could not open UDP socket?
    4.Winsock implementation lacks important

    I uninstalled dial up ntwrkng and all the
    network clients, dial up adapters and clients
    and then reinstalled them, but still no go?
    I also download a fresh copy of winsock32.dll
    and used sfc to install it, still no go?

    Please help me anyone.
    I appreciate any help you can offer, thank you.

    Have you a network card installed? Lets see if its working properly. Go to Control Panel | system. Device Manager. Under Network Adapters will be the name of your card. What is it and is there a yellow !

    Rightclick and choose Uninstall. Reboot and let Windows detect the card and install the drivers for it. Also, before the reboot, take the card out and push it back in.

    Of course, this is assuming you have a card. Do you have a firewall? If its a modem, look for the modem in the Device manager and see if its got a yellow ! and whats the name.
