Hello, here's the problem right now. I bought an Airnet AWN108 PCMCIA wireless network card for my Dell Inspiron 3500 laptop, which is running Windows 98 Second Edition. I installed the driver and put the card in my laptop and it recognizes the card, but the laptop was stalling horribly, stopping for half a minute then working until I clicked something and it still couldn't connect to a network. My teacher and I had come up with a few ideas as to what could be wrong.
- A bad Windows 98SE driver and Windows just doesn't know.
- The laptop is too slow for the card.
- Windows 98SE just doesn't know how to use a wireless card.
- I just don't know how to properly configure it.
Also, just so you know, I am in a computer networking class at school, so you don't have to "dumb down" what you're saying, but I'm a complete newbie to wireless networking.
