reinstalled 8.1, now no internet connection
I just finished an irritating two hour reintall of 8.1 after a system folder corruption.

Though all my TCP settings on my crusty 9600 are still in place (I'm pacbell dsl) - I keep getting a 'no network' message in both Netscape and Explorer. Unplugged and replugged my ethernet to the extrenal DSL modem but still nothing. Thank goodness I have my Powerbook to write this with.

Help. Thanks. bohdan

Someone recently posted a similar message on a different message board. They recommended entering all TCP/IP settings from scratch instead of copying the settings file over from another System folder. You're on DSL; have you ever used IPNetRouter? It patches the TCP/IP configuration with a reference to an IPNR System folder file. If that file is removed (like if you did a clean OS install) then your IP won't work. To fix this, create a new TCP/IP configuration and re-enter all config info from scratch.

Or have you done this already?

Thanks for your note. I had never known about that and when I get home tonight I will re-enter my info for my PacBell DSL/TCP settings.

My Powerbook is headed back to Apple today for repairs so I've GOT to figure out how to make the 9600 work.
