Specs: Windows 98, 64
Have Netgear wireless hooked to windows 98 (called computer2) have the router hooked to master computer (called computer1). Have full signal to both computers. Could connect to the internet on the no. 2 computer "until" I deleted and restored windows. The only problem was it kept poppng up telling me I was working offline and did I want to connect. Since reinstall the signal is at 100% but it will not bring up the internet. Any suggestions?

With 98 the 'make an internet connection' (or whatever it's called) often doesn't work and you need to install an ISP to connect.

64 meg of ram? Are you sure that's enough?

I guess you got the safe mode thing fixed?

Check your Browser Tools menu. It may have a feature for working offline. Should be a Toggle On/Off.

If you have a ToolBar supplied by your ISP it may be located there. Check all the Toolbar menus.

There is nothing to learn from someone who already agrees with you.

They tell me @ microsoft I have to update windows for it to work. Like I said it work just fine until I restored everything. I will never do that again, it has caused more problems than good.

Put the 98 cd in the cdrom. Close the autostart screen. From START--RUN type in SFC and then OK. Choose to extract a file. Browse or type in the path to the WIN98 folder on the 98 cd. Then extract each file.

WSOCK32.DLL and WINSOCK.DLL are probably on the 98 cd. I'm not sure about wsirda.vxd. It'll say something like 'file not found' if it's not on the disk.

Extract the file to windows or windows\system, whichever is the location it's missing from.

I have an update waiting to update windows 98 but have this error.BVRPCTLN.DLL file is linked to missing export SHELL32.DLL:SH That is preventing me from going online, I have it hooked straight up to the router but that is the error I get. The adapter has a 100% signal but cannot detect network settings.

That means BVRPCTLN.DLL is expecting a newer versoin of shell32.dll. You can check what version you have now by opening 'MY COMPUTER', C: drive, then the windows\system folder. Right click on 'shell32.dll', choose 'properties' then 'version'.

Updating to IE 6 sp1 will, I think, update shell32.dll. There's also a MS security update that updates that file:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...

I updated to IE 6 sp1 and my shell32.dll version is 4.72.3812.600.

I don't know of any other 98 updates for shell32.dll.

You should probably update to IE 6 sp1 anyway given what you're trying to do.
