Try configuring the DNS servers manually. You have to know the IP's.

No, that's not what you do. You want to try to Detect Network Settings by opening Internet Explorer and waiting for it to load a page.

first check to make sure WEP is either not enabled or is properly configured.
then as The Major said check your DNS settings.
i'm trying to remember win 98 and wireless... i'll look it up a quick sec.



edit. try updating your drivers. also check for windows updates.
is this windows 98 or win98SE?

Yes definately check your WEP and your SSID settings.

It seems to me like your router and your computer's wireless card are not talking. Look through your router's instructions and find the router's setting's IP address. For Linksys it is 192.168.1.1

Type that IP address into internet explorer to see if you can connect to your router. If you can't, then you need to use a computer plugged into the router to change the settings on the router to match the settings on your computer with the wireless card.
