Without having any type of error code, i strongly suggest upgrading from Windows 98. There is probably a very good chance that your hardware will not be able to sustain a more up to date operating system, but hopefully it will.

If for some reason you cannot get it to network, perhaps the hardware isnt compatible with the OS you load, i recommend migrating the data off of there and seeing about getting some inexpensive new machines to replace your old ones.

Hope this helps.

PC running vista was running fine for 18 months now cant see my router or anything on my network but internet works fine still. My childrens pc running xp sees all network fine still so suspect firewall but how can it change by itself?

Thats the nature of the firewall - to be dynamic and prevent attacks. however that can hurt you too. Many times depending on the FW used it can see packets coming from an IP as malicous and block it. Problem is, that could have been valid packets. McAfee Security center and the Windows firewall are notorious for this.
