Socket error[] 100019
I have a PC that is running AOL DSL(OS 98SE). The DSL modem connects to the computer via an ethernet card. Recently, I had to uninstall it and re-install. Since the reinstall, I have not been able to re-establish my DSL connection. When I boot the computer, I get a socket error 100019.

I contacted AOL and they said it was a windows problem. They told me to call Dell. Dell said it was an AOL error having to do with my AOL provided Ethernet card. They began to tell me to re-install TCP/IP to see if that would clear it up but they did not know how to do that with 98SE.

So, I have 2 questions. 1) Why do I get the socket errors and how can I prevent them and 2) Are these errors preventing my DSL from connecting. Any help would be appreciated. I seem to be playing "stump the band" so far.

Before starting be sure you either have the Windows98 CD available or the CABS files on your hard drive. In the "Control Panel" go to "Network". Under the "Network Configuration" tab click on "Add".On the "Select Network Component Type" screen clickonce on "Protocol" then click on "Add" to the right. Under the "Select Network Protocol" screen select "Microsoft" on the left side under "Manufacturers" and then on the right side click on "TCP/IP".

Here is a sight that explains how to set up the connection. Dialup is first then TCP/IP follows.
