Is there a Win98 update for Internet connection sharing...

or do I have to install SE? Win98SE can not be installed over 98, you need to reinstall completely.

I'm pretty sure there is. I believe it got released after Win98 as an "enhancement" because they couldn't get it in there in time. As was most of the stuff that became SE. Check out MS's site for it, although it's so old it may be hard to find. Other places may still have it.

ended up installing SE anyways, but I cant get the internet connecton sharing to work. If I remember correctly, there is a little config file or something to run, is that what im missing? I set up the pc with the ip and the correct gateway, but it still wont work??

Any suggestions?

Nope. Sorry, I hardly ever touch Win98 and I certainly never touch it there.

Try here:

They basically bitch about Windows 98, then give you really helpfu tips. The first paragraph from the above link reads:

... The problem is that the Internet Connection Sharing Wizard that comes with Windows 98 Second Edition doesn't work very well, and in some cases, can break your existing Internet Connection. The good news is that it's not that hard to set up, as long as you do it properly. If you perform the following steps, in order, you should be able to get it right the first time.

Hmm, I did the changes and will try later... they do it differently than me though, I normally assign a static ip and pass through the shared connection pc as the gateway... for my 2000 box, it worked wonderfully and it also works on my brothers old pc, but it just wont work on the new one and its driving me mad... it can see the network and all but not get on the web
