unless it is a modem designed for network sharing, you will need to look up ICS internet connection sharing tool in Windows help to share dial up access to the internet...also check out internet sharing software product called WinGate

Manually install your modem.
If Windows 98 does not automatically detect your modem, install it manually.

To manually install your modem using the Install New Modem wizard

1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then double-click Modems. If the Install New Modem wizard does not start, click Add to start it.
2. Click to select the Don't detect my modem; I will select it from a list check box, and then click Next.
3. Under Manufacturers, click your modem's manufacturer.
4. Under Models, click your modem, and then click Next.
5. Under Select the port to use with this modem, click the communications port where the modem is installed, and then click Next.
6.Click Finish.

Note
If you are not sure which communications port your modem is installed on, contact the person who installed the modem or consult the modem's documentation.

Remove any other modems that are set up on your computer to eliminate conflicts.
To test that Windows 98 is receiving information from your modem

1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Modems.
2. On the Diagnostics tab, click the port for your modem.
3. Click More Info.
If you receive an error message, or no information is displayed in the Identifier box, the modem is not installed correctly.
