You may struggle if youve got win 95 on it, and only if you got usb ports,go for a wireless usb adapter if you can find one, as sometimes the pcmcia driver can be a bit fiddly and cause problems with pcmcia wireless cards. Although there are win 95 expansion cards available most are only 11MBPS transfer speeds as apposed to the 54MBPS and 108MBPS cards now available for other operating systems

Extensa 5235 wireless adapter

Great try.
Last piece really: under device manager, did you notice any USB devicewith a question mark on it or a yellow/amber triangle?

Where none is displayed, you can safely conclude the wireless adapter is defective.

One last try: install/attach your wireless adapter to another PC/laptop and see what happens.

Say, hope the wireless adapter does not have any button or small knob on it, some place, which you are expected to push/press for it to run/start.

No association with access point

The first thing I would recommend is to try plugging the adapter into another laptop to see whether it, or your laptop, is the problem.
If it's OK on the other laptop, I would suggest un-installing the driver for the adapter, upgrade Windows XP to latest, downloading the latest driver from the Linksys website then re-installing the driver according to manufacturer's instructions.

You can order pretty much any PCMCIA Wireless network adapter. If the machine is older, you may want to try the "802.11g" or "802.11n" wireless notebook network card.
Try Belkin F5D7010, it uses the "g" signal band.

For starters, make sure the wireless adapter is turned on. Some laptops have an external switch. Also, look to see adapter is enabled in the Device Manager (control panel > system). If you do not see an device manager, you may need to reinstall driver for the adapter. All drivers that came with system can be found online at Dell's support website.

Suggested Laptop Wireless Adapter For HIGH SPEED INTERNET

I would go with card slot adapters, you can find many different ones but I used Dynex 802.11G card even running Win98, I've seen then cheap on sites like eBay. You can use acble and wireless at the same time and with 6MP, you will not notice any speed loss unless you are running live feeds on all 3 computer
