You can connect to the router's site?

In reply to: Well?

If the computer is able to connect to the router's website, then you are incorrect in saying that it can't connect to the internet.

Perhaps you merely have a proxy problem: try setting the proxy settings of your internet browser to those which your other computer(s) use to connect successfully. This will depend on which browser you are using. So when you post back here, please state which browser you are using.

Try using a different browser. Those which run on Windows 98 include Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1, Firefox, Opera 10.10, and Kmeleon.
