Hi jerry_spencer,

try these first
http://digital-solutions.co.uk/lavasoft/whndnfix.zip - Winsock repair utility for Windows 95/98/98SE/ME.

last option is:  ( do it on your own risk :))
Open Network settings
1: Remove all protocols except the Network Interface card.
2: Click Apply & Close the Properties box, but on reboot notice, hit Cancel. Do not reboot!
3: Open Regedit and delete these keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VXD\Dhcp
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VXD\Dhcpoptions
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VXD\MSTCP
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VXD\Winsock2
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock2

Close Registry Editor.

4.) Open Network Properties again,
    and Click ADD - PROTOCOL - Microsoft/TCPIP
    (should Add Client for MS Networks Automatically)

Have your windows CD ready or the CAB files,
Reboot that should do it...

good luck

Cheers!
