New win98 install, Internet Explorer pages won't open

I've just formatted the hard drive and installed windows 98SE on an IBM 300GL. The modem connects and logs on just fine but iexplore version 5.0 will not open any pages - dns error. I've compared my dialup networking setup which is identical to the other computer which works. TCIP settings are correct, protocol installed etc...
Can't download an iexplore update, same problem..

Have you tried to right-click the IE icon and go to properties and then connections and check the lan settings at the bottom and then highlight you dialup connections and go to settings and check those to make sure you don't have any info that is not required entered. Are you using dns settings? Dave

Install MS-DUN 1.4 from Microsoft. Did you make sure you have TCP/IP installed in the network settings?

That should not have caused the problem, and if it was a tcp problem not being bound then the msdun1.4 should have fixed it. Do what you like. :>) Dave
