Windows 98 and DNS Issues


Somewhat eXPerienced

Hey guys,

Two of our customers so far [I work for an internet company] are having issues with Windows 98 and DNS. No matter what we do, it refuses to use the DNS servers and therefore you can't access websites. We have worked on both of these computers and have placed in the DNS servers ourselves, and still they refuse to work. Does anyone know anything more about this situation?

Add a name in Host field in the DNS tab, doesn't matter what it is. For some reason it will not work without one.


seems tcp/ip is corrupted. this can happen alot with win98. remove and reinstall tcp/ip and that should take care of it. i used to work for a few isp's and thats what we did to resolve the issue.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
