You may have all the necessary files on your PC already, do a search for .cab files or look under My Computer>C: drive>Windows>Options and see if you have a string of files ending in .cab there. If you do then that's all you will need to restore dial-up networking.
Before you go to restore that have a look in Start>Programs>Accessories>Communications>Dial-up Networking and see how many network connections are defined there. The fellow who installed the wireless networking should not have needed to remove the dial-up network so it could still be there. If it is you can double click on the icon there and it should dial out as per normal.
If that works then all you need to do is tell your browser to dial using that connection rather than the wireless connection. To do this open Control Panel> Internet Options click on the Connections tab. Highlight your dial-up connection, click 'Set as Default' button and select the 'Always dial my default connection' button. (I'm doing this from memory as I don't have Win98 anymore so sorry if some of the names don't match)
Click OK to exit the Internet Options. Now when you double click your browser it should attempt to dial out as you wanted.
