I have an ADSL modem connected to a PC running 98SE this is wired networked to a machine running XP. Using internet connection sharing I could happily access the net on both machines. Recently though when I connect, the 98 machine always shows the page unobtainable message yet I can still access the net on the XP machine. I have tried disabling Norton Internet Security and uninstalling /reinstalling the modem with no luck.
Assuming the Gateway puter is the one running XP.... check your firewall on both machines and that they are both using the same Group Name for the network. For some bizzare reason., my XP machine has a good memory for these things, but not other os!!
download mozilla click here and see if you are getting your web pages. If you are then check what has been blocked by your firewall. The reasoning is that if it was working and you are not getting any error messages then my gut feeling is that it is your firewall.
