    turn on winbook xl wireless

    I've been given an old Winbook XL runnning Win98. It has a Zoom v.92 pc card, and shows infrared, but finds no devices within range. I want to connect it to my wireless setup without spending any money. Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    I'm afraid there is no way to connect it to a wireless system without spending a little money - you need to purchase a wireless card that will run from the PCMCIA, and be compatible with Windows 98, or find a usb wireless dongle compatible with win98.

    The v.92 vard is for 56k dial-up.

    This wireless card might work (no gurantees without checking the machine first though!).

    Thanks very much - I'll give it a try. Hate to waste a machine . . . someone likely has a use for it around here. Peace to you. P
