For wireless in Windows 98 you need the software supplied by the people who make your USB wireless adaptor. This can be a sin or a blessing, but the basic idea with most of it is you need to find the connection, supply any security key, then save and activate that entry. Not very elegant but not a lot else you can do. Check the instructions.
