No applications recognize internet connection
Posted on 1998-01-14
Yesterday I ran Win95 setup to fix a file error and I didn't have the installation disk for my Sportster Winmodem. I bypassed it, but when I got a hold of the disk today I couldn't uninstall the modem, so I took it out, ran setup again, and then put the modem in and booted up. It seems to be working now as I can use dial-up networking to connect to the internet, but no applications recognize the connection. Eudora Light can't find my host, ICQ can't establish a connection, Netscape can't find the DNS. I have checked everything that I can think of and the settings are as they should be. In Control Panel->Networks, TCP/IP and the Network Adapter are installed. I even uninstalled them and reinstalled them to no avail. Any ideas?
