I installed Windows 98 in QEMU. I want to run networking in user mode. I start it with qemu-system-i386 win98.img -m 256 -soundhw sb16 so it should be using default network hardware and probably working. In Network adapters section of Device manager I see only "Telephone adapter" (not sure about translation), no other NIC. I think that's the problem, anyway here are other details: I tried setting the IP address manually to, nothing changed in output of ipconfig /all. ping reports destination host unreachable. ipconfig /all reports only one interface, Ethernet adapter, its description is "PPP Adapter".

    Which hardware did you select in Qemu? Did that include a NIC? If it did, which model is it emulating? Are there drivers for that model in win98 (if not it will be an unknown device in 98's device manager). – Hennes May 3 '15 at 13:37
  • I edited it to add the command I used to start it. I also tried -net nic,model=e1000, no change. There's no unknown device in device manager. That's all I did to select hardware. – user443482 May 3 '15 at 13:50
