Ok I've got this machine that someone brought to me, they say it belonged to a company and they bought it for home use but it still has that companies settings on it. I disabled all the start up items which got me pretty far but I still can seem to get the machine on our network. Normally people can just plug in and go but this one wont. So i disables norton from starting, ran malware scans, manually put in all the ip settings (ip, dns, gateway subnet...) and still nothing, tried letting windows wizard set up a lan connection no luck, and the 1st thing i did was re-install the nic drivers. I can ping computers on our network but when i try to ping www.google.com it says "Unknown Host www.google.com", tried a winsock fix (with the proper 98 file) still no luck, i'm on a time crunch to fix this any ideas??

Spot-on :tazz:

SJSCHOO -- if the computer was previously owned by a company, I wouldn't be suprised if they installed extra protocols. So, you could also try performing some of these tests.

Please download LSPFix from here. Run the LSPFix.exe that you have just finished downloading, and please list all of the protocols that are in the 'Keep' and 'Remove' list; if there are protocols in the 'Remove' list, then please don't click 'Finish>>'. Simply close the program by pressing ALT+F4 or the Close [x] button.

Test your Network
1. Goto Start, Run, type: NETSH DIAG GUI - press 'OK'. A Command Prompt window will open temporarily; don't touch it, it will disappear in a moment.
2. A Microsoft Help and Support window will then open; select the option 'Scan your system'.
3. Wait for the scan to finish and then scroll down to the heading 'Modems and Network Adapters'. Look at 'Network Adapters' (don't expand it yet). Beside your connection information, you should see a green 'PASSED'; if you do not (if you see a red 'FAILED') then expand 'Network Adapters', scroll down the list until you see the heading with the 'FAILED', expand that option and copy and paste the results here.
In the NETSH DIAG GUI, you should be looking for any red 'FAILED', however the key one is Network Adapters for you. If you see any other red FAILED, expand the component and copy the results.

Goto Start, Run, type CMD and press 'OK' - now type: PATHPING Your_DNS_Server - please copy and paste the results by right-clicking on the Command Prompt window, selecting 'Select All', and then pressing the Enter key. Please post the results here.
*Note: You can find your DNS Server by going to Start, Run, type CMD, press 'OK', then type: ipconfig /all and looking for DNS Server ........... IP (there should be multiple addresses, any of them will do fine).

Does ipconfig /all actually work on Windows 98?

Did you run that command whilst that computer was connected to your router/network? If not, please do so -- if you did, please post back letting me know.

Thanks,
Dan.
