    Red face browser can't find internet the first time after boot, any tip's?

    i have a server w/ win98 Internet Sharing connection and DSL, and 3 computers connected to a hub, when i boot up my computer and click on the e-mail or IE browser, i get an error and has an option to re-try and after that it connects fine.

    has any one have any ideas on how to fix this?

    Thumbs up

    when first booting up. Allow all the pc to connect and find the DHCP server (sharing PC). Sometimes it takes a few minutes.

    Thumbs down

    All the PC's are either ON or OFF, only the server is on at all times, but even after 20+ minutes after boot up, the computer still gives that error! it is not a big deal... Im just sick off geting that.....

    jmc74: Like I posted eariler, I've got the same problem too. Also having simular problem w/Outlook Express error that says it "doesn't work with my current service". Of course, as with IE5, I try it again and it's ok. Called my ISP, no help yet.

    Agree with you, it's just a pain in the A$$.

    Monday, I'm going to opt for the $35 & call microsoft tech support. I'll post the outcome (the $$ is worth it, I get goooood info from those turkeys).
