Welcome to Geekzone!

Try the simple solutions first:
  • Is it all plugged in?
  • Is it all plugged in the same as before it moved?
  • Are any setting different that shouldn't be?
Things like that Wink

Also, perhaps the new company uses different settings on the cable service and the router is not correctly configured? Different companies use different settings sometimes.

And... if you can help it, don't connect a Windows 98SE system to the Internet.

It's not secure, and the Internet is a very hostile environment now.

Juha: The Blaster worm and friends are all 2k/XP specific. Win98SE is arguably safer than XP out-of-the-box

Well well well looks like my husband pulled out the wire from the router to the computer! I am now trying to see if this will fix it. Thanks.

  • Is it all plugged in the same as before it moved?

Well, if all ok after you test, then the prize goes to JAMMAN2110. Wait a minute, what a prize?

Yeah, all I had to do was plug in the router and reset the IP address and all works well! I should have thought of checking the wires myself but I thought, I know I plugged that thing in, then I remembered that my husband had been putting in all kind of music wires. He uses our computer for recording so lots of times he will knock out a wire or something when he is doing his music.
Thanks for all the help.
