When you go to the propertities of the network card highlight the one showing
your connecion (do you have 1 for modem) click on tcpip then properties
it will give you the option for static. put 1 address higher then your sons
same sub net same default gateway the ip is the only difference

Ok back to basics
when you go to the device manager (view device by type)
click on the + sign for the network card, Do you show 2 network cards
1 for modem 1 for network card
(this bit later)
Windows me does not have dos so how do you rename files?
ok we can make a 98se boot disc that will give you access.

But it is still something!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm really sorry, but I am so totally confused right now.

Click on properties: General, Driver, Resources & Power Management

I don't see anything referring to static or DHCP

I have a listing for the Ethernet NIC, but not the modem under Network adapters.

Also, I just noticed that the Westell modem is not listed under modem.
COULD THIS BE THE PROBLEM????

ooooh...........New Error:

Warning: Microsoft Dial-Up Networking (DUN) is either not installed or is corrupt on your computer. Please reinstall DUN from Control Panel using add remove programs, and then start the Verizon Online CD again.

Tried to install the modem from the isp cd. It continues to tell me that "the specified location does not contain information about your hardware" while pointing at the only folder containing *.inf files.

yes ihf the modem is not showing in the network this is the problem.
where your ethernet nic is there should be 2 nic cards one for network one for modem.
your isp is wrong your modem is not on your computer that is the problem.
ok when you run the setup new hardware in control panel does it have the option of search or I have disc

well you really are not using a dialup connection as such.
you get this through the nic because your modem/router is acting like another computer and you need to connect to that.
if add new hardware does not work run the network wizard
Because you can ping it means zilch.
we have to get the isp disc to work.
try above if not use the disc and when it stops tell me what it says.

Didn't expect a response so fast. How are you?

Yes, there is an option, but it is not listed in the manufacturer's list and it wouldn't come up when I directed it to the cd in D: drive.

Do you really think it can be this simple. Just install the modem. It's not in my machine, it is just connected to my machine.


That file and the boot disk: I have to run downstairs and use my husband's computer to make the dos boot disk. Should I still do this? And still try to rename that file and then reinstall IE6 again??? Do I have this all right?

Networking Wizard:

a) A connection to another computer on my home network that provides direct access to my ISP

b) A direct connection to my ISP using the following device:

1. Microsoft TV/Video connection (believe this is the TV adapter that is not installed and has the yellow exclamation mark)
2. Realtek RTL8139 Ethernet NIC

No option for modem.


The router shares the connection, right? So, I do not want to share internet connection?

This one stopped before it started:

Microsoft Dial-Up Networking (DUN) is either not installed or is corrupt on your computer. Please reinstall DUN from Control Panel using Add Remove Programs, and then start the Verizon Online CD again.

This is the first isp cd that I couldn't get to run before. Don't remember this being the error though. I'm looking for the new one now.

Will try it and let you know in just a minute.

Ok, I have an hourglass that won't go away. I put the new cd in and hit cancel to cancel the error from the previous cd. Now it won't close.

What will I mess up when I reboot?

Ctrl-Alt-Del not an option here.
