I just purchased a new, 4-port router and connected both of my computers to it. My XP computer, which had been connected to the Internet via a cable modem, required absolutely no setup changes. It performed immediately as if there had been no change whatsoever. But my old Win 98 computer, which had last been connected to MSN 8.0, via dial-up, required some changes in both the IE and OE settings and account areas. This I did, to the best of my ability, but it still tells me that it can't find the server and I just can't get on to the Internet. Any ideas or suggestions

I'd get rid of everything in Network Properties, then reboot and let Windows discover it again. It should be very close to what you need after the default configuration.

Johnwill, Thanks for the good advice. That's essentially what we do and it went very smoothly. Now I'm up and running with 2 networked PCs. cwilmot
