Wireless via laptop and Windows 98SE: Cannot Find Page error

by Zaph / November 16, 2004 5:29 AM PST

I've just set-up a wireless network with a Lynksys router installed by Comcast. I have a laptop (Windows 2000, wirless card) and a desktop (Windows XP, Ethernet wire) on the network. My internet connection is through Comcast cable attached to the router.

I'm trying to add another laptop with Windows 98 and a wireless card. The third laptop can see the network: The network name shows up. When I entered the WEP key, it appears I'm on the network.

PROBLEM: When I use Microsoft Explorer 6.0 ? or any browser ? I get a message that says, "Page Cannot Be Found."

Have I missed a step along the way? Is something improperly configured?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
