    Trying to help sister - she has linksys router using wep/128B+/open/with network key (excuse ignorance in terminology). Internet works on xp and laptop, but not on win98 machine with linksys wireless-g pci (used to work before I added network key). Here's control panel info:
    Network
    configuration - linksys wireless-g pci adapter - properties - advanced - ssid matches router - shows binding to tcp/ip linsksys wireless-g pci adapter
    tcp/ip linksys wireless-g pci adapter - properties - specify ip address 192.168.1.200 (should this be on router somewhere?) - host on dsn config matches router - dsn server ip matches router ip
    Somehow missing link between win98 machine and router. HOW???????
    You guys are awesome! Thanks, Sheryl

    You should be using automatic IP addresses. If there's some reason for using static IP addresses, you should make sure that you've specified the Default Gateway at 192.168.1.1 or you won't get connected to the Internet.

    I tried this no luck. To recap:
    winxp attached to router works on internet
    wireless laptop to router works
    win98 on older pc used to work until I added network key to router - has static ip address

    Is there someplace on the router configuration to add the static IP of the old win98 (192.168.1.200)?

    I only have 2 more days before I go home (from WI to NC) and would love to get this fixed.

    Thanks,
    Sheryl
