Network problem

By jeremy27 ·
Got a problem with a Windows 98 computer on an NT network. I can access the internet only with DHCP enabled but cannot with the computer's IP address. I need to be able to access the internet as well as network shares and I cannot do both with DHCP enabled. How can I get this computer to connect to the internet as well as shared drives and computers without changing the IP address?

when you logg in with the dhcp settings, go to the dos prompt and type "winipcfg".
take a note of all the settings, ip, gateway and dns.

Then remove the dhcp and enter all of that info.

What's happening now is that you have a mismatch between the gateay or the dns.

on a working nt workstation with bot internet and local network connection, go to the dos prompt, and type: ipconfig /all
compare those settings with the one of the win98.

You should also be able to connect to network shares and printer resources if you have the same shared domain/workgroup name and gateway. Just double check the workgroup name, change your machine id in network properties and reboot.
