|I having trouble geting an old computer connected to the Internet with Windows 95. It works with NT4 and 2000 (it's a triple boot.) |
At first I was getting an error every 5 min telling me that Windows couldn't obtain an IP address from the DHCP server. I booted to Windows 2000 and used IPCONFIG to find the IP address, subnet mask, DNS, etc. information that Win2000 was using to get on the internet. I copied all of these settings to Windows 95. Now Internet Explorer 5.5 gets stuck at "detecting proxy settings". This is better than before, where it would only display "page connot be displayed." But it's still getting stuck somewhere. The network card isn't old, so I had to use a WIN98 driver for 95. Could this be tripping it up?
