Old notebook

Postby Deputy1515 » Thu Jul 29, 2004 11:25 pm

I want to connect my 100MHz laptop to my wireless network but am having a hard time finding a PCMCIA card that will work. It has to be 16 Bit (I ahve found several) But it also must run on a 100 MHz CPU. I got one but the minimum was 300 MHz. Any one out there know where I can find one of these? I am pulling my hair out trying to get one.

hmm, that is probably a very long shot. Try ebay or your local computer recycler...

Wireless sorta came out in the 32bit era.

yep. not feasible. You might get away with a regular network card + a converter...

If the laptop is equiped with a USB interface, then a USB wireless device would suffice.

And even if you got it working, a BIG if, then you have the internet issues. You'll need to upgrade to IE6, flash, java, etc. Your best bet is to get a new machine if not, I wouldn't waste my time with this old one.
