winsock.dll not present error

When trying to use telnet applications on a Win 98 machine I keep getting the following two errors

cannot load tcp/ip
and
Winsock.dll not present

Checked system directory and winsock.dll IS present so copied it to windows directory on the off-chance it would work (this has worked in the past).

Web access works fine and am able to ping remote IP addresses so it seems to be a problem with telnet apps.

Any thoughts on this?

Is Windows 98 updated with patches and fixes from WindowsUpdate?  What about the Browser in use and version?

Specific error messages are helpful.  Have you tried running ipconfig?

Some great suggestions so you can have the points, but I've just been told that the telnet package we use on our machines doesn't work with Win98 so I reverted to using Windows Telnet and it's working fine.

Thanks
