Default Windows 98SE & Linksys

I have Linksys set up for my laptop, but have an older computer with Win.98SE
on it. I have connected an ethernet cable from the computer to one of the
ports on the Linksys, but cannot get a connection. I can connect directly
too my ISP's Zoom, but cannot connect thru Linksys....can't seem to get much
help from my ISP or Linksys. Suggestions anyone?

If you can connect to the ISP from the computer then you need to check
and/or set some things, look there and ask questions related to what you
find there if you have issues or additional questions:

The TCP/IP properties of your win-98 system must be set as follows:

IP Address: Obtain an IP address automatically

DNS Configuration: Enable DNS

You might have to enter a DNS server address in the "DNS Server Search
Order". If you don't know what to put there, then put these:

4.2.2.2
4.2.2.1

Gateway: one of the following:

192.168.0.1
192.168.1.1
192.168.2.1

(try them one at a time until one of them works)

WINS configuration: Disable WINS

Bindings: Client for Microsoft Network

So basically there will be some trial and error with the Gateway
setting.
