    I currently have a 2.4ghz linksys b band wireless
    connection between my win98 cpu(client) and xp cpu (host).
    File sharing works great, but internet sharing is not
    working. the win98 shows internet gateway present, but
    will not connect to gateway with browser using xp cpu

    any ideas thanks,

  2. Which device (98 box, XP box, or wireless box) are you
    trying to use as the router?
    Please post model of linksys.
    I am assuming that both the 98 and XP boxes are linked
    together wirelessly. If so, how did you set up the
    wireless box? (this normally requres a cable connection)

  3. Is your Linksys box a wireless router or a wireless access point?
    What's its model number?

    If you have a cable or DSL Internet connection, a wireless router can
    share the connection between both computers. In that case, they're
    both clients of the wireless router, and there's no host computer.

    If you have a dial-up Internet connection, you can use one computer as
    an Internet Connection Sharing host and bypass the wireless router's
    router capability.

    What does the 98 computer show for IP address, subnet mask, default
    gateway, and DNS server? To see, go to Start | Run | Winipcfg, select
    the network adapter from the menu, and click More Info.
