Wireless was just a dream when Windows 98 was first got started..
Have you run all the Critical Updates from the Windows Update site? If I remember correctly, there are some fixes for various network protocol/winsock issues in those old updates.
Have you tried hunting the D-link site and making sure you've got the most recent software drivers for the wireless card?
Have you tried running the LSPfix tool from the link below?
HOpe this helps.
Ok, Im never gonna get Hewlett Packard AGAIN! My windows 98 pavilion 8760c desktop is freshly restored by the 2 recovery discs it came with. I just installed my D-link wireless card but I cant connect to the internet. The D-Link Airplus program says I have a high signal and strong connection, but when I open internet explorer, it doesnt connect and the refresh page shows. I get that error 59: network protocol error when i boot up. How can i fix this error and get internet back to my desktop??? O yuea, i hate HP!
