A friend of mine has an old Pentium I 200Mhz PC with Win 98 SE that he has asked me to connect to his existing WLAN.
The PC has no USB port.
I have tried to install a Topcom PCI card, but later learned that his PC most probably only has support for PCI ver 2.1 (I think), and the Topcom demanded PCI ver 2.2. It installed without any error messages, but never worked (the green light on the card didn't light up, and the config software never detected any signals).
I have now found another card, the CNet CNWL-311 802.11b. The specs don't say anything about which version PCI it supports, but it being a 802.11b and not g (as the Topcom) led me to assume that it might support older PCI ports...
Does anyone know if the CNet CNWL-311 will work in an old Pentium I200Mhz computer? (I'd hate to buy yet another card that doesn't work!)
