Default Windows 98se startup network password prompt

How do I get rid of the prompt for a network password on Windows 98se?

The title of the window says "Enter Network Password". In it is: "Enter your network password for Microsoft Networking." and then the place to enter username and password, and obivously "OK" and "Cancel" buttons.

I have no password assigned, but my name appears in the username field. I can click both OK and cancel and get into Windows without typing in any password.

I tried looking in control panel, but couldn't find anything for it. I tried msconfig -> system.ini, and then unchecking "Password Lists", but that doesn't work; it just creates a new file in the "Password Lists" folder, and checks that file.

This is a really annoying problem that I'm sure has a really simple's just that I forgot how to do it...
Someone help!

Are you on a network? If not you can remove the Client for Microsoft Networks in your network properties

I am on a network. I'm using a wireless USB adapter to connect.
