win98se, using netgear pci card and netgear router, bix will NOT retain settings for wireless dsl access. after a restart, box defaults to 127.0.0.1 address, and only by running internet setup wizard EVERY TIME will it get online. any way to makethesettings stick?

I think maybe so. That IP is the one Microsoft chose for your computer to communicate with other machines, which is probably why it's being used. If you go into the wireless network connection and change to a fixed IP, namely that one, I suspect the problem will be solved. If that doesn't do it, we'll have to try something else.

When I was using that IP I think a had to put a period at the end, or add a port number for it to stay in the settings.

thanks for that...maybe you could talk mekthrough the procedure of assigning a fixed ip address, since i can't seem to find a controlpanel or properties pane that will allow this. bear in mind this is a win98se box i'm talking about...

Instead of running the ICW on the desktop, right click on it and choose properites, then click on Find Target and open the icwoobe.exe (Out of box experience) instead. You will be given the options you need for setting up a LAN with a fixed IP and you shouldn't have any problems. If you do, by all means post back.
