    Who is your her provider? Earthlink? It sounds like you are connecting through a program like WinPoet. If so, you may have to reinstall that program, or a phone call might be in order to the ISP so that they can check your settings. I had WinPoet and it's kind of picky.

    Sounds like a Winsock problem.......

    Basically to fix:

    Remove all networking devices and protocols.

    Boot into safe mode, go to Control Panel / Add-Remove Programs, and go to the Windows Setup section.

    Uncheck Dialup Networking to remove the remnants of TCP/IP.

    Reboot and go back into safe mode.

    Run regedit, do a search for and remove all instances of Winsock and Winsock2.

    (optional) reboot back into safemode and re-check dialup networking.

    Reboot into regular mode and allow Windows to detect your network device(s) - when prompted have it reload any existing drivers off the original disks - including Windows Networking.

    That's about the only thing that will bring Windows 98 back from a botched update or installation that basically trashes the entire TCP stack.
