PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Win XP & 98se

I have a question. I have a broadband internet connectiong at home. I have the line going into a router. It then splits off into 2 lines. 1 for my computer (XP) and the other for my wifes (98se) I have no problem getting the internet to connect to my computer thru the router. My wifes computer does not get an IP address, and therefore, can not connect to the internet. If I try and plug the modem directly into her computer and bypass the router, I have the same problem. I have changed network cards, cables, reinstalled drivers, and formatted her computer with no solution. Anyone know what the problem could be? It worked fine just about a week ago.

Thanks in advance!

Try tackling this in a different manner then.
Do you know how to give the Win98 machine an IP manually??

How did you set up your wife's computer? DHCP is through the router, I bet, but did you point the default gateway back to the router?

Tried that. Still won't work. I can ping 127.0.0.1 and it sees that address just fine. Anything else does not work. I tried to remove and replace the winsock stuff. That didn't work either. The error message I get is "Can not connect to server" when trying to connect to and website. All of the lights on the ethernet card are green and one flashes occasionally. I know the cable and ethernet card are fine. I pulled them off of another computer that is working fine.

127.0.0.1 is the localhost, or in other words, the machine itself.

Click Start -> Run and enter Command in the box and click OK
Next type ipconfig -all at the prompt and hit Enter.
What does it display in the Dos window??
Copy and paste here please Smiley

Tomas, for Windows 98 that should be: Start->Run, type winipcfg {enter}
