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.

Howdy,

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.
