Hi.. I have just recently done a format job on my comp. I reinstalled all my progs and drivers etc all works fine except my internet connection.
Once logged on while surfing the net I keep getting timeouts..as I go to a page the modem sits there and doesnt respond for a few seconds, finally it will respond, this isnt all the time maybe one page in five. I have no problems with downloading files etc, once logged on I get a reasonable d/load speed which is constant.
This is the second format since comp was new and this problem did not occor last time and I used all the same drives etc so why might it happen this time.
I have a P3 733
U.S.Robotics faxmodem (ext) 56k

Rat_Attack do you have more than one browser? for instance do you have Netscape or Opera. Im wondering if its IE instead of the modem is why I asked. Do you have trouble if you're not surfing as well?


Savvy :)

you may need to run the repair on Internet Explorer

<font face="comic sans ms" color="#577ac6">Double-click Add/Remove Programs in your Control Panel.
On the Install/Uninstall tab, scroll down to Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 and Internet Tools.
Double-click on it, and select to Repair Internet Explorer.</font>

Thanks Signature I tried that but explorer isnt in the list..I also tried running this command

rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE5Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"

When loaded it gave me the option to add a componant to explorer but the button to repair would not highlight, nor would the other button to uninstall explorer.

I just realized that Windows 98 SE doesn't have Repair Internet Explorer listed in Add/Remove Programs.

So, now I'm trying to get to http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q236/5/79.asp, which may or may not have an answer for you, but it seems that the Microsoft site is experiencing temporary technical difficulties.

Ok...I've been rerouted.
Yep, sure enough, here's your answer:</font>

<b><u>The Repair Internet Explorer Tool Is Missing</u></b>

The information in this article applies to:
Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition
Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition

SYMPTOMS
After you install Windows 98 Second Edition or Windows Millennium Edition (Me), you are unable to use the Repair Internet Explorer tool.

CAUSE
This behavior occurs because the Repair Internet Explorer tool is no longer available in Windows 98 Second Edition or Windows Me.

NOTE
The Repair Internet Explorer tool is designed to work only with Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, and Microsoft Windows NT 4.0.

STATUS
This behavior is by design.

MORE INFORMATION
The Repair Internet Explorer tool is found in the Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 and Internet Tools option in the Add/Remove Programs tool. In Windows 98 Second Edition, the Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 and Internet Tools option is no longer available. To reinstall or remove Internet Explorer 5, you must reinstall or remove Windows 98 Second Edition.
