Connecting to Internet

By ewarrington ·
I am trying to connect a computer running windows 98 2nd edition to the internet through a workgroup. The online computer has win2k. I can ping the computers from each other. When I try to go online using the win98 computer, it tells me it can't find a connection.I disabled the modem hoping that it would use the NIC, but that doesn't work. Am using tcp/ip on the computers. Would someone be able to tell me what am doing wrong. The computers are connected through a work group. Am not using 2000 server. I have 2000 pro.
thanks for any help you may be able to give.

What type of internet connection do you have? DSL, Cable, dial up modem? How are you connecting the computers to each other?

Am using Cable as my internet connection.
The computers are conneted togerther with a hub. The one running W2k has 2 Nics. One is connected to the internet and one to the hub.

The best way is to get hold of an Internet router - not expensive - and connect that to the internet and also to the hub. Connect both computers to the hub.

With the router properly configured, probably also with automatic IP assignment on both machines, all traffic will be dealt with as appropriate and both computers will be able to connect to the internet.

The other option is to set up Internet Connection Sharing on the Win2K machine and configure the Win98 machine to work through that gateway.
