I have an old Trogon laptop running Win 98SE, I can connect using a dial up connection with a PCMIA card modem, however, I can't get a network connection, I have tried wired and wireless, it will aknowlege the network card and apears to be operating, but when I open IE or Firefox, it says "No internet connection available"

Describe how you configured the ethernet connection. Is it USB or PCMCIA?

I want you to, Start>Run>cmd>ipconfig /release. When that is complete type in, ipconfig /renew. Then try to access the internet.

Unplug your LAN. Wait one minute then plug in your modem. If it has a battery backup make sure you remove the battery while the modem is unplugged. Next, after the modem has been plugged for one minute plug in the router (if you have one). Then turn each computer in the LAn back on.
