Look in the device manager and se if there is a yellow ! or ? at the modem listing or that there is even a modem listed in device manager. It sounds like either your modem wasn't detected or the drivers were not installed.

Right click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties" and press "Enter"...selct the Device Manager tab and press "Enter". Check to see that there is a Modem listed. If there is, click the "+" sign next to it and see if it is listed by make and model. Now right click on the modem and choose properties...it should tell you if the modem is working properly or if it has a problem. If it is has a problem, post back with the make and model (if possible) and I'll see if I can help you find drivers for it.

First...have you tried setting up your account with aol again...I've run into issues with that end before. Before I start having you changing hardware settings and swapping drivers, I'd like to have you try aol's account setup one more tme to be sure.
The driver for your modem if you want to download it now is at the link below and the file is HSFp_Win98SE.zip. (Be sure to read the "read me" file for installation...it's located right next to the download icon)
(Rockwell is now Conexant)

Download the file...navigate to it...right click the file and choose "Send To" > "31/2" Floppy [A]" and left click. That's all there is to it.

Just double click the file and follow the prompts...it will install itself onto the C drive. Then you'll want to go back to Device Manager, choose your modem's properties, click on the "Driver" tab, and click on the "Update Driver" button. Let the "Wizard" search for the driver and install it when it's found.
Reboot and see if you can connect....keep me posted, I may have some more options available.
