Installation for wireless g cards w/out CCD drives

I have an old panasonic toughbook running windows 98. It doesnt have a cd disc drive. I'm using a wireless b card and the signal quality is poor. I have Verizon Fios for my desktop immediately downstairs beneath this room. I have a netopia 3d reach and also a linksys wireless 2.4 ghz card with installation discs...but no way of downloading the software to this computer. no CD drive..only a 3 1/2 floppy drive. There is no ethernet connection on this unit either..can any one provide some instruction for getting a wireless g card to work in this unit...instead of being stuck using the wireless b card??

I'm just taking a stab at this because you didn't mention which model of toughbook you have but if it is old enough that it does not have an ethernet port, I'm betting it has a dialup modem.

Check out this link and find a provider in your area. It will be very slow but it should allow you to connect to the linksys website to download the driver.

or maybe you know somebody and can borrow their account.

Bought used toughbook on ebay, no hard drive or OS. using my old hard drive from broken one. get to bios screen, but will not boot up into windows. I'm guessing some drivers may be jacking me up, how do I...


reformat the had drive and install a fresh copy of OS from the compact disc.... once the installation is complete, boot up the computer again... if it works, then every thing is perfect....you can go ahead and install the drivers for your devices in the compter...
please clarify if you have any further troubles in installing the OS in your computer...

Wireless will not work in my panasonic cf50 after running restore


You need to download the driver in order to get it to work. Suggestions are using the ethernet connection if possible, or by whatever other means you used to post this message and download the driver for the wireless network card. If you used a secondary computer to download the driver, use a jump-drive/pen drive/thumb drive/memory card/etc, to transfer to this computer.

I'm tryin to install the sierra wireless card 598 on win 98 manually. Does anyone know how to do


Hello sir, hi, installing a USB device on windows 98 is kinda hard but possible. here are some things that you should do:
  1. you may need the sierra CD device driver that comes with your wireless card.
  2. next is that your PC should support USB 1.1 or 2.0. If you are using windows 98, make sure that your USB port is working fine, you can insert a flash drive to confirm if your usb port is working.
  3. depending on the setup files they may need you to plug in the device as the setup file loads the driver or later.
  4. run the sierra CD setup file to install your wireless card. (hope win 98 supports this device)
  5. after the setup, plug in your wireless USB device, windows 98 should detect it.
If things didnt work out as listed above, do it setup several times, ............ still no progress call your dealer for proper installation on your PC.

How can i get wireless connection on my notebook?


as in our chat session, you will need a pcmcia card, cardbus/type-II wireless card, preferably 802.11g with backwards compatibility. the cd that will come with it should install everything needed with minimal user interaction. you can try a usb wireless dongle, but i don't believe most work well with usb1.x. the good news is, although your laptop is old, the pcmcia card specs have not changed much, just make sure that whichever card you pick up has windows 98/98se drivers.
