DNS error can't display page

By mark ·
I have a Win98 PC running IE6 & ICS. I can
connect to the internet and am able to view
web pages via my client Mac, but the server
(Win98 PC) is unable to display web pages
and I get the 'The page cannot be displayed'
message. I have unsucessfully tried to view
pages by using IP addresses. I can ping the
IP adresses, but not the FQDN. I aslo have
more than one copy of wsock32.dll, one in
\windows\system and one in \windows and
I'm unable to rename the second one. This is
incredibly frustrating please can some one
help. Thanks

if using dynamic addressing on win98 box, try start/run/winipcfg /release /renew on network adapter or whatever adapter applicable.
if using static addressing, try setting manual dns settings up per your isp webpage help section.

ISDN TA connected to the PC. I'm not sure
what you mean by "start/run/winipcfg /release
/renew on network adapter" Will that work or
do I need to change 'network adapter' to

You need to restart PC uder DOS:

1 start=>Shutdown=>restart in dos mode

2 type this in the command prompt:

ren \windows\wsock32.dll wsock32.2

and then restart the pc

Do you have something like this from your ISP?
