I have a bit of a problem and I was wondering if anyone had any insight or ideas.
I have a laptop. A very old one, at that. It's a Toshiba Satellite Pro, I believe and trust me, it's old.
The OS running on it is Windows 98 SE.
The harddrive is about 1 GB or around there.
I got it off of ebay for about $80 and it works fine.
However, I recently bought a wireless router. It's called a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router, model WRT54G.
I have my current desktop computer hooked up to it, and I had a friend over who made sure it worked by testing it on his own laptop that got absolutely no signal until my wireless router was installed.
So I did some online shopping to look for the perfect wireless PC card for my laptop.
All the directions pointed me towards a Netgeat WG511T 108 Mbps Wireless PC Card.
It said everywhere that it was compatible with XP, 2000, and 98SE.
I bought it at Radioshack for about $49.99 and I saw that on the box, it said it was only compatible with XP and 2000. I decided to give it a try anyway.
I checked a .txt on the installation disk and it said that it was intended for use with 98SE as well.
I'm not sure if this is even the problem ...
But whenever I put the PC Card in my laptop (in both slots I tried) it does not recognize it at all.
Usually there is a beep or something, but there is nothing.
In the past, I have only tried one PC card that proved successful ... I can't get my hands on it at the moment, but it was for a dial-up modem. I tried it just the other day and it beeped and worked normally.
Could this be a problem with the card or with my Laptop?
