Logging onto Network

Okay I have messed around with this all of yesterday and today and cant get it. Im running Windows 98, connected to a LAN and have a network adapter installed and running. However when I turn on my computer and 98 starts it does not prompt me for any passwords, just takes me to Windows 98 and i cannot access the network. However when i click logoff then it takes me to the Windows Networking password, i am prompted for a password, and i log on and can access the network. Why the hell am i not logging on to the network when i boot my computer the first time? why is it bypassing prompting me for a networking password? i really dont want to have to log on, log off, then log back on the access the network. i have tried alot of fixes, but none seem to work. anybody got some new ideas?

Start-Run-SFC and see if there are any corrupt system files.  Also check Windows Update to see if there are any system updates.  You also may want to try a regclean.  Make sure your registry is backed up before playing with it, though.

In your Network Neighborhood properties, make sure that your Primary Network Logon is for Client for Microsoft Networks.

Try that first.

If it still doesn't prompt for network logon, go into the registry to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ and then WinLogon or Network.  You're looking for something like an AUTOLOGON key.  If you find it, just delete the key and that should fix your problem.

I've noticed this happens when you run some of the Gateway recovery disks.
