I am working on a friend's pc (fossil Win 98 1st edition). They had all kinds of spyware which I have deleted. I am now trying to set it up to share my cable connection to speed up the process of downloading updates.
Currently I have file sharing enabled, so I could easily copy over AdAware, Spybot ect. Both pc's can ping each other, and my pc (Win2k Pro) can ping the router, but my friends pc times out when I try to ping the router, or any www address!
I need some pointers on what to try next!
I have used this method before to fix other pcs' and had no troubles but I have no experience with Win98 first edition. I thought because I am using a router that setting up internet sharing would be just like Win98SE.
Thanks in advance for your input.
