    i got a 98 pc at work, problem is when you connect to the internet the bytes sent and recieved dont move, stuck around the 500 mark and thats it, page cannot be displayed the rest of the time.
    I saw this once before and without going too deep into it i formatted the PC, i dont want to format this time i wasnt to fix the problem, but i think my choice of keywords suck, cus i aint come up with a thing.

    Try this

    Go to the add/remove in control panel ..... look at the windows setup components .... find the dial up networking remove the check mark ..... apply reboot go back and put the check mark back in dial up networking you will need your win 98 cd when prompted ..... might fix cant hurt :)

    Go to Control Panel
    Remove Modem drivers
    Shut down PC
    Remove Modem
    Restart PC

    Problem fixed. You will no longer get 500 bytes in any direction...

    ---------

    If you do want bytes though,
    Go to Control Panel, make sure all original modem references are removed.

    Reboot PC a coupel of times ........ Win98 likes this

    Shut down PC
    Insert Modem
    Restart PC
    Load Modem drivers as normal

    Should now work ok
