Hardware Vendor Detection Utility
and see if it recognizes your PC.
If it's Win 2000 or XP you could also right click on My Computer and select Manage then Device Manager then look under Network Adapters and see if there is a wireless adapter. If it's there you can right click on it and look to see what drivers it uses. It may not have one if it is really old. Does it have a USB jack you could use to add a wireless adapter?
If all else fails we may be able to figure out what's inside with Speccy:
Get the free version of Speccy (probably needs XP but might run with Win 2000 - doubt it would work with 98 or 95)
http://www.filehippo...download_speccy (Look in the upper right for the Download
Latest Version button) Download, Save and Install it. Run Speccy. When it finishes (the little icon in the bottom left will stop moving), File, Save as Text File, (to your desktop) note the name it gives. OK. Open the file in notepad and delete the line that gives the serial number of your Operating System. (It will be near the top about 10 lines down.) Attach the file to your next post.
