I installed Win98SE on my Toshiba 205CD laptop over Win95.  It works fairly well, but Netscape cannot install a socket after I have a good ISP connection.

1. Yes, TCP/IP is installed and I do get connected to my ISP.  When it calls Netscape, Netscape loads but cannot establish a network socket.  I have also tried Eudora with the same results.

2. winsock.dll   40K dated 4/26/00
    wsoock32.dll   21K dated 4/42/00

This is the date I installed winsock2.  G Prell

You could try removing TCP/IP, rebooting, and then reinstalling it. But TCP/IP doesn't reinstall winsock. If it asks you to replace files, replace them.

For winsock, you should reinstall the drivers for your adapter.
