98se networking gone awol

  mammak 22:30 14 May 2006

Ideally should have titled this post “help woodchip” because he is the 98se resident expert but that being against forum etiquette I thought I would take the chance he would read this, and of course anyone else's help would be most appreciated,
My 98se laptop previously was on my home network worked a dream (at that time I had a cable and wireless router unsecured ssid) fool I was, but I since loaned the lappie to a college mate who was not on the internet, I have since got one xp home pc wired one xp pro pc wireless and a laptop xp home wireless all sharing internet file sharing ect.my router is BT voyager 2091 and the 98se laptop has found the network with noted excellent connection but trying to connect to the internet all I get is page cannot be displayed, any help?

Its sorted was going chuck the thing but it was as simple as this checked device manager yellow mark on PCI card uninstalled it rebooted windows couldnt find the right driver so hunted out the very dusty motherboard cd put it in and hey presto sorted.
