    Try setting the DNS and gateway settings manually.

    You either have a dynamic (DHCP) or static (fixed IP) address - if it is automatically assigned then you have DHCP, not static :)

    OK... seeing that you are using Win98SE, try running "winipcfg" from the run command in the Start Menu. It is more detailed than the ipconfig command, and can tell you things such as when your IP address was assigned and the like.

    I'll ask at college on Tuesday (more help there), but in the meantime try and get Kheldar to see this thread to see if he can help. :)

    The winipcfg command in the RUN menu only yields a fatal error that I explained in the original posting.

    Kheldar... HELP!

    With the Win9x/ME OSes it usually makes more sense (and takes less time) to reinstall...... providing it isn't a 486 LOL
