I do not have an OS disk since, a hand me down pc and most of the software is not there. Will this be a problem with reseting the winsock? I am trying to get wireless internet on a desktop with Win98SE with a linksys usb adapter from a desktop running XP wired to a linksys router/ap. The XP gets internet fine, the 98SE can talk to access point but no internet. Previously, it had a temp ip (something like xxx.254.x.x) with WEP. Now, with no encrypttion it has 0.0.0.0. I have read several posts on this. In one, you suggest the TCP/IP may be corrupt. I just dont want to delete it and not be able to get it back.
