98 SE drops WAN & some LAN tcp/ip con's

By yessssbutdoesitWORK ·
Win98 SE drops TCP/IP Inet connections at random (5-60 min) intervals and loses ability to explore LAN but affected machine can still be browsed and connected to from LAN. Am connecting through Linksys BEFSR41 DSL router. 2000 not affected but I think 95 OSR 2.1 may share affliction.
What causes this and how do I fix it?

Thanks

i have the same problem with the same router . i not found a answer either but what i do is right click network neighborhood and go to shared access click unshare and the put back share and restart computer . i think it is a inherint problem with win 98 . reject this answer i dont want your points because i really dont have a answer. this is just a work around

Win98 for some reason looses its networking stack at random. If this happens the only way around it is to restart.
