    win 98 and lan

    Locked

    by r_deer ·

    I recently bought a older computer for my kid. it had no operating sys and so I used an older win 98 disk and got that in for him. The problem now is that I can’t get it to go on the internet. It keeps telling me that no dialup connection bs. I changed the settings in control panel to lan but still can’t get it to work. Any sugestions please

      Without knowing what error message you are getting there is no way to tell what is happening in the box.

      Sorry. Wish I could give you better information.

      NIC installed?

      did you install the drivers for your NIC?

      is there a light on the NIC?

      can you ping 127.0.0.1 ?

      is it plugged into a switch/hub/router?

      is it set for DHCP or did you give it a static IP?

      go in and setup a new connection, using lan (sounds like you already did, but try it again)
