If you can find a suitable USB wireless adapter that will do it. However you must ensure it comes with a disc for W98 - might be a job to find one these days.

EDIT:
Belkin used to do one.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

FYI Microsoft discontinued supporting the ancient IE6. In addition, be aware that nearly every websites may deny you access unless you upgrade to IE8 or later versions or just use Chrome, Firefox (no idea if Windows 98 platform is supported).

No idea about Chrome but I regularly update Firefox to the latest version on my XP - works fine. I don't run IE online for security reasons. I assume you are running XP SP3.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Does the computer have a network card installed, or built-in (on the motherboard)?

What make is the computer; at least the motherboard details? Do you know the type of expansion slots it has? (And does it have any usb ports (as per Derek's suggestion)?

"how do i connect to the internet with windows 98"

How do you want to connect? Wireless or ethernet cable? If wireless, you'll need an wireless adapter. Either a PCI card or USB adapter but make sure it supports Win98.

You'll also need a different browser. Try K-Meleon or Maxthon...IceDragon may also work. You can find them here: http://filehippo.com/software/inter...

And you may have to disable the dial-up in Internet Options. Click the Connections tab & check the box for ""Never dial a connection".
