Browser Doesn't 'See' Connection...

The problem with the hotspot is that it requires Internet Explorer. The failure to raise the initial authentication page when connected is a sure sign that this is an Internet Explorer only site. It happens when the host programs their authentication around Windows API components.

I'm attempting to help a friend with his wireless setup but do not know
much about it myself.
He has a Pentium 150 laptop running Win95 and uses a WaveLAN 802.11B
PCMCIA card. He can connect to a local internet cafe's free wifi hotspot
but his browser reports there is nothing found when he attempt to load a
simple site like:
formatting link

The card's software reports a good connection but that info is not
making it to the browser (Mozilla). Any suggestions as to what to check?
The network setup says: TCP/IP => WaveLan card so the binding is correct.
The laptop has lot of ram and HD space.
Thanks in advance.
