I have suddenly been unable to access the Internet from my PII desktop, running Win 98 SE. The messages I get are either that there is no connection to the server or the site (whichever I try) cannot be found. I know the connection from my cable modem is working perfectly because I removed the cable from my laptop and plugged it into the PC and still couldn't get it to connect.

Thoughts? :idea: :?:

I've had this problem recently with 3 Windows 98 and Win2K machines. In all cases the cause was the same. I or someone did Windows update and updated the drivers that were listed. In all three cases they screwed up the drivers for my network card. I had to uninstall the drivers for the card. Delete the card and reinstall it with the original drivers. The symptoms were the same as above so I thought I'd mention it.
