I have a LAN with several computers. The Internet access is made through dial-up. One of the computers (with Win XP as OS) has the dial-up connection shared so any1 using XP in my LAN can remotely connect/disconnect to the net. One of the computers has Win98 as OS.


How can I remotely connect/disconnect to/from the Internet from the computer with Win98 as OS?

Thank you very much.

Try using the IP address of the XP box as your default gateway on the 98 box.  Not sure how ICS works, but if it follows the rules of IP this might work.
