Modem problem. Connects, but won't download.

Hey all,

Kinda stumped and thought maybe one of you might help. I had some parts and threw together a 233 P1 for my cousin and everything was working great when I gave it to him. He tried to install AOL 6.0 on it and it got majorly hatched. I cleaned up his mess, but still have a problem. It will dial and connect to an ISP just fine, but can't actually download a web page. It can't ping either, the ping request just times out. The machine specs are below, thanks for any thoughts.

P1 233MHz
64 MB EDO RAM
30GB HD
ISA Sound
Hercules Stingray 128 (Voodoo Rush) PCI Video
Generic PCI 56k Modem
Azza socket 7 Motherboard

Have tried MSN, a local ISP and pinging.

What OS is it running?

It sounds like AOL butchered the network components. Have You tried reinstalling dial-up networking and the TCP/IP stack?

Sorry, it's got 98SE. I'll give your suggestion a try.

Thanks!
