Question about 3Com OfficeConnect Wireless 11g 802.11g/b (3CRWE154G72)
I recently installed a 3COM PCI card ( 3CRGPC10075) on my (old) Compaq Laptop ( Pentium II, Windows 98SE). I connect to my home network(XP) through a D Link DI 524 wireless/LAN router. The 3 COM Wirless Card Utility running on my Laptop shows that I am connected to my Network, which confirm that the install was correctly done, however I am still unable to connect on the Internet. From my main PC (running XP ) I use a Network Magic Network Configurator/Utility Monitor to manage my Home Netwrok. Here I am able to see the Compaq laptop has been reconginized and connected to my network on the 3COM Wireless Card. Other PC on the network ( LAN + wireless) can acess the internet expect the Compaq What do I need to do to connect on the INternet from the COmpaq? regards rayan
If not done allready, setup the lan IP address and default gateway in win98 Click MyComputer-ControlPanel-Network-Double Click TCP/IP Adapter for your 3com device-insert LAN info for IP Adress-subnet mask, Gateway and your Internet service providors DNS Addresses info Tab's (3x different Tabs "IP Adress" "Gateway" "DNS Configuration") IP Adress will be at least one number higher than your gateway address and not allready being used by other PC's on your network and gateway address will same as your router interface address subnet mask will be the same for all PC's on your network. For 3com and Netgear routers LAN setup is usually Gateway = 192.168.1.1 Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0 IP Adress = 192.168.1.10(choose alternate number than 10 if allready used by another PC on your network, try to use round numbers, must be a number higher than 1) Once all info is entered click OK (this may trigger a database info update message and task)now your LAN is setup and ready to talk to your network Restart PC and try browsing again. May possibly require reinstallation of the TCP/IP client (you double clicked this to setup your LAN in Win98) or reinstallation of the IIS(Internet Information Services)component found in, Add/Remove Programs-Add/Remove windows components and then try LAN setup again if this does not work first time round

Bluetooth is not WiFi, they are two seperate technologies.
you need a Wireless adapter 802.11b/g for your laptop,
you would connect the two to each other using an adhoc connection,
If you had a wireless router for your internet you could connect directly to the router, (and then you would not have to have your main computer on for you to access the internet.
BTW if your Main machine is near your phone point (for internet connection) you would not need a wireless card for your pc, as you could connect via LAN cable to the wireless router (make sure you get one with lan ports)
