    I can't for the life of get my WIN98 machine to connect to the internet with my WINxp machine playing host over a wireless network. I am using a Linksys router with a cable modem connection. The WIN98 machine says it is connected to the network workgroup HOME but cannot find the internet. I do not know what else to try. Is it in the TCP/IP set up? I thought I had tried everything there too but I just need any advice. I have messed with off and on for a month now. I downloaded network magic but can't get it installed on the older machine. The most frustrating part is I actually had another computer connected at one time with the same configuration but can't get this one to go. ANy ideas?

    go ontothe both PC and post an IPCONFIG /ALL for both lets see whats there
    also model of router

    there are two ways to do that

    ONE -

    ipconfig /all

    rightclick in the box
    select all
    control key + C key - to copy
    then reply here and
    control key + V to paste

    TWO -
    Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window and type:


    Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.

    Now for the 98 machine
    instead of CMD - COMMAND should work
    in fact you should see DOS prompt in progams
    IPCONFIG should work on the 98 PC
    butwe may need to try winipcfg

    post back results - then we can start looking at all the setups

    From your first sentence I infer that you are using ICS. Your second sentence states that you have a cable modem and a router. Wanna describe your network so we don't do too much guessing and assuming?
