I have a windows 98 computer that has always connected to the internet, but when I checked to see that the computer was still running it could not connect to the internet. Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening?

Thanks,
T-man

Where to start.....

Could be very simple - If your connecting via cable, it may simply be faulty - try replaceing it. Have you checked your network card and make sure it is functioning? Are you using dynamic or static IP addresses?

Go to 'My Network' and click properties and select TCP/IP and select properties... does it say obtain ip automatically or does it list ip/mask/gateway numbers? If it says obtain automatically try the following.

1) Try going to <start> <run> type in winipcfg
2) select your network card
3) select release all (you should get all 0.0.0.0)
4) select renew all (you should get new numbers like 192.168.1.1)

If you get the new numbers, try the internet

I just checked the cable with one that works on my other computer, and I have checked my network card but no luck. I have a dynamic IP address. I just tried your steps and they did not work either, it just comes up with an error saying,"DHCP server unavaliable: Renewing adapter." Any clues?

Thanks,
