Steps to restore Internet on a networked PC ???

  Revi 10:52 12 Sep 03

I have two networked PCs connected to broadband through a common router; PC 1 using Win 98 and PC 2 W2K professional. For some reason I am not able to get through to the Internet on PC 2, whereas internet is working fine on PC 1. I have checked all cable connections, they are ok. I disconnected and reconnected all the router and broadband cables for the sake of caution. I am even able to access on PC 2 the required files from PC 1. In short, everything is working fine with PC 2 except the internet. On clicking on the IE icon on PC 2, the globe on the upper right hand corner turns for a while and then stops showing a monitor screen saying that the site is not accessible ( exactly the same sort of screen you get when you type a wrong web address on the address bar).

Would someone please describe to me all the steps (if that is possible w/o reverting back to me with questions) that would be needed to restore my internet connection on PC 2 ? I am not tech savvy and so would appreciate a step by step or very detailed and clear instructions.
