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.

Google for WinSockFix and you will see several versions. Get the 98 version.

This is not my pc. I am the local pc helper. Everyone comes to me with their questions, problems, etc. If I don't have the answers, I can usually find some info on the net. I love this site. It has helped me solve lots of problems, mine and for others. I have XP on all of my pc's and wouldn't use anything else cause I love it. BTW, the bus is really dirty under here, somebody needs to clean it!:D
