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/DriverDeta...

then buy an ethernet card?

Thanks Guys!

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=N82E168... (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.

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

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.
