Hi
I am working on a Windows 98 system. It is connetected through a LAN and access the web via a proxy. For last few days the network of the PC goes down about 1.5 hours after booting. At that time it can not browse the network nor connect to the proxy. But after rebooting the PC the network connection is restored only for next 1.5 hours. I could not figure out the cause nor could solve it. can anybody help me?

so you boot a pc up on a network (workgroup or domain) then after an hour of using the machine...the network connection on thta machine dies...then you reboot...and it works again for another hour?

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.

Yes... it exactly happens like that.
But I was no t successful running the 'eventvwr.msc'. When I tried to follow your instructions it gave the following message.
"cannot find the file eventvwr.msc (or one of its components). make sure the path and filename are correct and all required libraries are available"

Then I tried to search the file under that name or similar to the name, but none found in my system.
Please tell me what to do now.

Thanks.....
