Thx for your reply. Is your instructions different than what a Comcast person had me do last night, that didn't work:
start command ipconfig/all then tried ipconfig/release and finally tried ipconfig/renew none of which worked. In your instructions, remember I'm a real rookie, are there any "/"'s? eg. winipcfg/release/all?

Start -> Run -> Winipcfg - Release All -> Renew All. This did not work for me, any other suggestions?
Thx for the response. Sure don't know much about DNS srevers, but I was told like you mentioned that Windows reverts back to IP address 169 for some reason, even though a have a STRONG signal from my DELINK router that my NetGear wireless card states that I'm connected, but no IP 192 address?
More sugggestions, as I should have written down the instrutions I was given once by a NICE Comcast person that knew W98, which is not support by my internet provided.

To find out your current ip address you type in winipcfg - ipconfig does not work on 98.
If this computer is staying at your home then we can set a static ip address - they do not change.
