This is probably not much help but...

I doubt that has to do with the fact that you are running Win 98. Have you looked at the connection in Internet Explorer? From the IE menu that's tools/Internet Options/Connections. Make sure that you have a connection that is configured properly.

If you're running broadband, make sure your network adapter settings are matched to those specified in your setup documentation as well.  If you use something like AOL Instant Messenger or Outlook Express and those applications are able to access the internet, then there is s omething wrong with the configuration of Internet Explorer, and like coltrane said, simply doing a once-over of your settings should fix that.  Try using the Internet Configuration Wizard by going to Tools >> Internet Options >> Connections (tab) and clicking the setup button then going through the wizard to let IE know how to access the internet.

As others said , most of the things happen in TOOLS/INTERNET OPTIONS/CONNECTIONS

There you should check the settings related to your connection (epecially default connection)
May be the PROXY is your problem. (in the SETTINGS of any connection selected)
Make sure you're using the correct proxy Address and Port.
You can get this information from you ISP (Internet Service Provider)
