cornick...i think you may be better posting in Networking.

I did the same as you the other day by starting a thread here and was advised to move it to networking.

I asked the FE to move my thread across and there i got the expert help almost immediately.

Dont start another thread on this,just ask FE to move it,therefore we will not lose johnnyrocker's links that may help solve this.

Hope this helps
Good luck

cornick is it Win98 or 98se because I dont think you can network Win98 as it doesnt have ICS. I am sure if I am mistaking sommeone will set you right

You only need ICS in a peer-to-peer ad-hoc network, where one PC is acts as a host. In a router/client network, it doesn't come into effect because none of the PCs need to act as a gateway; the router does that.
