    Ok, I've been having a lot of trouble with the wireless internet in my home. There is a network of 4 computers, 3 of them being wireless. 2 of the wireless computers have wonderful internet service, but the third just will not connect. I have tried contacting the router's company but none of their advice is helping. I deleted and reinstalled the program on the non-working computer. For most of the time the computer says that it "cannot associate with the access point" but it will also switch to "you are conncect to access point but internet cannot be found." It's an old computer (it's running on windows 98) but for awhile the internet was working fine on it and I just want to be able to get it back to that point. I have run out of ideas on how to proceed from here so I was wondering if anyone else had some suggestions? Thanks.

    can you post an ipconfig /all

    from a working machine and from the win98 PC

    ipconfig /all

    TWO Methods to do that - some people have problems with ONE----

    ONE ---------------------------------
    start
    run
    cmd {command in win98}
    ipconfig /all

    rightclick in the box
    select all
    enter
    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:

    IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT

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

    The 0.0.0.0 IP address normally means you have driver and/or hardware problems on the computer. Another cause is a duplicate IP address on the network.
