Converting DELL Latitude CPi A Windows 98 to WIFI

I have the laptop mentioned in the title. It's not essential that it has WIFI but I was hoping that there is a solution.

My current theory on how to do it is:
Install this driver: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriverDetails/Product/latitude-cpi-a?driverId=R20267&osCode=W98&fileId=2731124146&languageCode=EN&categoryId=NI&c=uk&s=dhs&l=en

then buy an ethernet card?

Thanks Guys!

  1. Does the laptop have a PCMCIA slot? If so, you can buy a suitable plug-in card.

    The card will look like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833156140 (for illustration purposes only).

    Yeah I have a double PCMCIA slot. I also already have a PCMCIA card, it is an ethernet card but I think I need to install a WiFi driver because my laptop's stuck in Dial-Up era.

    Thanks

    Give up, nothing works on Win98, WIFI is questionable at best.

    Time to consider a new laptop.

    Seriously? I'm sure we've had this thing running on WiFi before. Although maybe not... :-/

    Surely there's some update I could install? Thanks
  6. Lol. I have a working laptop and a desktop. But there's some memories I have on that laptop which I'd like to upload to OneDrive. Plus it's still a great little laptop and full working order would be nice.

    Thanks anyway

    When I say that the laptop's stuck in Dial-Up era, I have no idea how to get it out of this. It's not as if I've tried anything. And I presume that the ethernet card is working.
