Windows 3.1 on Wireless
, May 04 2005 08:04 AM
Is there anyway to put a Windows 3.1 computer on wireless? I have been told by a GooglegRoup to use an ethernet wireless bridge, but I still don't think they make drivers for it under 16-bit. The computer has no USB ports, I'd about have to use a serial, parrellel, or ethernet because I thought have anything else.
I found an old B 728KBPS wireless. Aparently one of the first ones. It says it comes with drivers for 3.1, 95, and 98. It goes in to a PCI slot. It's buy $10 on Overstock Autcutions. I think I'll give it a shot. This will be compatible with my 54MBPS network, right?
A wireless bridge does not need a driver. I have a wireless ethernet bridge. You connect a ethernet cable from you computer to the bridge and it puts your wired computer on the wireless network. I have connected bsd, linux, dos and windows 3.1 computers to a wireless network this way. The hard part was getting an ethenet driver for my pcmcia card (plus the pccard services) under win 3.1, but I did get a 3com lan card working. Get a bridge on ebay, much cheaper.
