I had this problem until (Sorry Trividia) I loaded the AT&T version of VNC.
Somehow, the Trividia VNC does not work well with Win98 systems. I also had
to update to the latest version of Iexplorer. Netscape worked better but I
still got java connect problems

When I right click on vncviewer.exe, Properties. the version number that
comes up is 3.3.3.3 !!!!

I have had great trouble keeping these different variants of VNC in place!
The Java stuff worked fine until Trividia came along!

Hope this helps

PS I supect that the DSL router has NOTHING to do with the problem!
