Internet access and IDServe problem
This isn't a firewall issue, but I lurk in this group. I also just posted a similar question into microsoft.public.windows.networking.wireless because it seemed to be an active group involving wireless and networking.
- Connectivity: Motorola SB4100 cable modem to TimeWarner infrastructure, dynamic IP - Provider: EarthLink - present IP - LAN: recent AirLink AR325W wirelessG 4 port ethernet replacing Linksys BEFSR41 wired, died - LAN elements: 3 ethernet wired running various operating systems half Win98se, half linux mostly ubuntu, one wireless Win98se with RealTek RTL8185 wireless pci nic branded as compusa wireless G pci adapter, alternately configured to access an AirLink AP421W ethernet access point or the AR325W wireless via channel 11 or 6 resp.
Problem: since replacing the linksys befsr with the airlink 325 router, the wireless W98 cannot get webpages with its browser/s, however, it can see and transact readwrite with the other computers on the network, it can ping the WAN IPs, it can resolve domainnames. It cannot ping domainnames.
Longer story: The W98se wireless could previously access the internet via the AirLink AP which was ethernetted to the Linksys BEFSR41. Currently the wireless problem computer can do everything equally well or equally poorly via the airlink access point or the airlink wireless router, namely use the LAN and ping and resolve names on the internet, but not get webpages and not get idservice from the same names it can ping. There is no software firewall.
Normal computer follows:

As a result of that, I can't get webpages. I also can't telnet or IDServe transact with such as the pop or smtp server, but I can ping them by name.
