I had a similar problem several years ago, with Windows 95 on Virtual PC for Mac. You might
find the Microsoft TCP/IP networking component is not installed. Without that, Windows 95
stays isolated from the internet. IIRC, Microsoft TCP/IP is not installed by default on some
versions of Windows 95, particularly the RTM version, but not Win95 OSR2.
Try this ...
Click Start - Settings - Control Panel - Network -
Add - Protocol - Add - Microsoft - TCP/IP - OK
You might be asked to insert the Windows 95 CD, so make you either have the physical disk
already placed in your optical drive, or a CD image file (ISO) of Windows 95 mounted in
the virtual machine in Settings, before you click through the above options.
