i just formatted my pc, installed win98se, and whenever i click on the IE icon, it brings me to a wizard to find my modem etc. i'm on a cable modem, and it's not there. so i have to keep hitting cancel, and everytime i click on the icon, all i get is that? any help?

thanks a bunch!

When that screen comes up, just click you have a permanent connection or you're connected on a LAN.

it's not the same one as the wizard from clicking on tools in IE. it says something like 'Windows will now find your modem...' and asks if I want to sign up for an msn account.

oh god no.. dont do that. there should be a 'skip dialing' or 'skip' button somewhere in the screens.

the xyz - if you can reach the desktop try:
Right click on the big blue E/Properties/Connections/Set Up/
when the new window apears, click on the bottom one - I want to set up may connection maually - I am on a LAN etc.
