    You could try flushing the dns cache after you have backed up all you settings

    at a command prompt type: ipconfig /flushdns

    It looks like /flushdns is not a valid ipconfig option for this OS.
    *
    C:\WINDOWS\Desktop>ipconfig /flushdns
    Windows 98 IP Configuration
    Command line options:
    /All - Display detailed information.
    /Batch [file] - Write to file or ./WINIPCFG.OUT
    /renew_all - Renew all adapters.
    /release_all - Release all adapters.
    /renew N - Renew adapter N.
    /release N - Release adapter N.

    Also tried the following:

    "If you can't access the Internet with programs like IE, Outlook Express, or other web browsers, you may have corrupted Winsock entries.

    To Remove the existing winsock2 registry entries (regardless of the OS) run:
    http://www.onecomputerguy.com/reg/xp_del_winsock.reg

    To add Win98 clean entries back in again, run:
    http://www.onecomputerguy.com/reg/win98_winsock.reg "

    Reference: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-9...ion-any-website.html?highlight=DNS+resolution

    This did not solve the problem. BTW problem is the same with IE and with Firefox.

    Also deleted a hosts file that had an old entry in it. re: the HJT log entry O1 - Hosts: ÐÏࡱ

    The c:\windows\hosts.sam file still exists with the 127.0.0.1 Local Host entry in it.

    Is it a setting in the gateway?
    Perhaps 192.168.0.18 -your computer- is not set up for http on the gateway?

    There are no restrictions on 192.168.0.18. This is a DHCP assigned address. The only specific assignments are for 192.168.0.14, specifically tied to a MAC address for a wireless print server. The DHCP addressing starts at 192.168.0.15 and goes through .30
    *
    I really think this is an OS / TCP/IP issue, but I just don't know how to track it down.

    I Tried this.

    Could be a DNS problem. To resolve, you will need a Win 98SE CD or have cab files on hard disk.
    1. Go to Settings -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs -> Windows Setup then click on Communications and select Details radio button. Uncheck Dial Up Networking.
    2. Run Regedit and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/CurrentControlSet/Services Right click on Winsock and Winsock2 and delete them.
    3. Reboot computer.
    4. Reinstall Dial Up Networking using same procedure as in step 1 except check box by Dial Up Networking. Follow prompts from there.

    This procedure will remove and reinstall DNS.

    Ref: http://techrepublic.com.com/5206-62...w77dTw3e_q?forumID=35&threadID=166689&start=0

    Results are still the same.

    Nope.
    Program may be helpful to you in making your network accessible...or it may not.
