I have an old tecra 700 ct boat anchor I'm trying to set up for someone to learn some very basic internet skills. OS is 98SE-very minimum install. bThe CD_ROM carrier is missing so all we have to work with is floppy drive. I want to install a wireless pc card to connect to hotspots with-and possibly cable-connect to my other laptop. This notebook is obviously pre-ethernet. Is this possible, or am I wasting my time? How can I do this?

Does it have a PCMCIA axpansion slot? If so, you should be able to get an 802.11b card that will work. It would be prudent to look up the stats of the slot for this computer on the Interenet, as not all PCMCIA are compatible. Once you know the type of slot, you can begin the search for a card. <_<
