Default 98SE IP address setup

I am using linksys WUSB54G network adapters in a peer to
peer network between a XP pro and 98SE computer. The
wireless network requires a specified IP address, but my
ISP server requires an automatic assigned address. I can
do this on the XP but it appears to be mutually exclusive
on the 98SE machine. When I make the change in control
panel / network / TCP/IP wireless it also applied to the
ISP connection. How can I setup both a specified and
automated IP address on the 98SE?

How many network adapters does the 98SE computer have? There's a
wireless adapter for the peer network. What adapter does the ISP
connection use?

Each network adapter has its own TCP/IP configuration, and changes to
one adapter don't affect another adapter.

To help others understand the situation, please reply in the news
group with a copy of the 98SE TCP/IP configuration. Open a command
prompt window, enter this line:

ipconfig /all ipconfig.txt

and copy/paste the contents of the "ipconfig.txt" file into the
message.

The 98SE has two adapters - the one for the internet is
TCP/IP Dial-up adapter - the one for the wireless system
is TCP/IP Linksys Wireless - G USB Network Adapter. When
both are set to obtain an IP address automaticially, I can
use internet explorer and outlook express, but the network
does not work. When the dial-up is set to automatic and
the wireless is set to Specify an IP address, 192.168.1.1
255.255.255.0, the network works, I can connect to the ISP
but internet explorer says pages cannot be displayed and
Outlook express cannot find the host.
I am new at this and do not understand the remainder of
your instructions. Thanks

The following is the best I could come up with.

With both adapters set to automatic

DCHP enabled yes
IP address 63.184.177.31
subnet mask 255.0.0.0
default gateway 63.184.177.31
DHCP server 255.255.255.255
Primary WINS server 151.168.254.40
secondary WINS server 151.168.145.79

Ethernet adapter
Description Linksys wireless-G USB network adapter
Physical address 00-0f-66-6b-86-2e
DHCP enabled yes
IP address 169.254.99.217
subnet mask 255.255.0.0
default gateway
DHCP server 255.255.255.255
primary WINS server
secondary WINS server

When I changed the wireless to specify an IP address I got

physical address 44-45-53-54-00-00
DHCP enabled yes
IP address 0.0.0.0
subnet mask 0.0.0.0
default gateway
DHCP server 255.255.255.255
primary WINS server
secondary WINS server

Ethernet adapter
Description Linksys wireless-G USB network adapter
physical address 00-0f-66-6b-86-2e
DHCP enabled no
IP address 192.168.1.1
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
default gateway 0.0.0.0
primary WINS server
secondary WINS server

I hope this information helps and you can help me resolve
the problem. Thanks
