Contact the help desk at your ISP.
You likely need to adjust some settings in
Control Panel/Networking/TCP/IP or another protocal.

I cannot give you specifics, as they very some from ISP to ISP.

If they have a good help desk, they should be able to walk you through the settings.

Once on-line, many ISPs have a page with all the settings and instructions.
It would be a good idea to save the page, or print it out for future reference.

Open DOS first and when in here run the following commands.
ping 64.58.76.176
If this return 4 sent 4 received then type the following
ping www.yahoo.com
This will probably return a host unknown right away. If it does then you have a winsock issue. To resolve this just reply to my e-mail address and I will give you the necessary steps to resolve the issue. MS will not support Win95 no more and I have talked to more than one person who has talked to MS and they denied that Windows can geta winsock error.

I hope you have a Independent Machine and not an Network Installation.
I hope you have installed the necessary Protocols and adapters for your ISP to work.

Since you are able to connect to your ISP the Problem lies in your Browser.

Check yourLan Settings in the IE.

Go to Tools>Lan Settings>Navigate to the Connection Tab and Check whether you have checked the Box Automatically Detect Settings.

If this done and it still does not work for you,Call up your ISP and find out what IP Address they are using and enter that in the Proxy Server address List.

I think this should set it going.If any Error pops up please get back to me and let me know.

I hope this helps you.Thank

Aravind

I read the other answers and would like to know what the fix is.

I have seen this before and fixed it by removing the communictions component under windows setup.
To do this go to control panel|add/remove programs|windows setup|communications and deselect dial-up networking.

Before you do this make sure to take down all the network (tcp/ip) settings and make sure you have a Windows 95 setup cd.

Restart your computer and go back to add/remove programs|windows setup| communications and select dial-up networking.

Put back all your ISP settings or phone the help desk, and try again.

Good Luck
H
