Question about Computers & Internet
The problem is your Windows 98 operating system. Neither D-Link nor Linksys have Windows 98 drivers for their cards.
If you want to keep this system for wireless use, purchase and install the upgrade for Windows XP and then use the wireless card. Your RAM and processor is adequate for Windows XP. If you are going to hire someone to upgrade for you, include the potental overall cost and see if it's worth keeping your system for this purpose.
Hope this helps.
