cisco vpn client and windows 98

I have a cisco 3000 concentrator and up to now have been installing the client on win2k/2000 machines. However, I have a need for a windows 98 install. I can access and logon to the network through the vpn ok. I can put in a name and have it resolve. For example, I can put in a name in IE explorer, see it resolve to ip number, but the page never appears. It seems to be a routing problem and I've even found a Cisco paper that addresses the problem.
Their solution is to do a dhcp release (they don't say when). When I do that, I lose connectivity.
What should I try?
Thanks

You will have to do an ipconfig /release then and ipconfig /renew after it renews you will have to reboot (good old win98). Then you should be able to boot the machine and connect via the client and all the routing should be ok.

The problem is, I'm not running dhcp in the concentrator. Instead, I'm running an address pool. Any ideas?
Thanks

It should be able to get an ip from the remote network that it is on. If I get this right it is a traveling user connecting into your network via a vpn?

We are an admin site that is not using dhcp. The client I'm using is the latest from Cisco (4.03 I think?).

Can you do a route print and post the results?

I will post that. But this is at a remote location and I cant get there until next Monday. While I'm there, and since I can't come back too often, is there anything else I can try?

Try a traceroute and see if you can get to the website. Also I would check and make sure IE does not have any proxy server entries in it.
