1st. you will need to enable DHCP on the router, this should be enabled automatically.
the cable modem should have a network cable and this will connect to the WAN port of your Router.
next the Host PC running XP if within close proximity to the router should be connected with an ethernet canble (network cable like the one from the cable modem.) plug this into port 1.
check the setting for your network connection to make sure is says obtain ip address automatically.
i would assume you are trying to run wireless on the windows 98 pc.
if you have installed a wireless card that came with the router in that pc and are having trouble. uninstall the card and follow the instructions provided with your router for proper instalation on a win. 98 machine.
it would help if you could supply a model number for your router and network card.
