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.

To setup tcp/ip on 98se go to the control panel, click on network, on the Configuration tab if TCP/IP is listed click once (if is listed click on Properties and write down all the information on all the tabs, then proceed with the following steps toremove and resetup TCP/IP), then click on Remove. Restart the computer, Same steps to get to the Network in the Control panel, click on Add, click on Protocol, Click on Add, click on Microsoft, click on TCP/IP. That should add it to the configuration tab. Click once on TCP/IP click on Properties. You should then be able to config according to the setup information given to you by AOL.
