You can try this site:

Your card is actually a BritePort™ Wireless LAN PCMCIA Card 2020, which was marketed by Creative. It's made by Broadxent, which is a British company. Either write to Creative tech support and ask for the driver, or contact Broadxent.

Without seeing it, I'd guess the power unit might have failed, or it could be the motherboard. Modern computers have a system management controller you can try resetting, but on a 15 year old laptop I don't know what the equivalent would be, if it even exists. If it's the motherboard chances are it'll be cheaper to buy a new computer.

My son has a DSI xl and we want to get connected to the internet


Cool! To connect your son's DSi XL to the internet, you'll need to use its built-in WiFi card to connect to your home's wireless internet. This is really easy to set up from the settings of the DSi, assuming you have a wireless router or nearby wireless access point.

Hi!

We need to isolate and troubleshoot from wall out. First, you need to check that your internet line is working by connecting your computer directly to your internet line (take off the router from the scene). If that doesn't work, you need to call your ISP to get you up and running first with your PC. As soon as it's up that's the only time you can add the router to the network.

Once confirmed, follow steps from this site:

If the Windows 98 computer does not have a USB port and you cannot copy the photos onto a floppy disk or burn the photos to a CD then the only option is the following.
Remove the hard disk and connect it to a USB hard drive adapter and then plug this into a USB port of a working computer. This computer will see this as an external storage device, you can then open the various folders and copy your photos to this computer or to a USB flash drive.

Need a pc card for wireless internet connect.Have tried netgear does not work in computer. any suggestion. model of computer 570e imb thinkpad. old computer work great but need internet connection. thanks


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.

Can't connect to internet if it is not synced to computer....help please


This unit works on WiFi so will only connect to the internet when in close range to a wireless router. Make sure your wireless card is connected properly and is actually sending out a signal. Go to "control pannel" then "network connections" and see if the connection is good. You can reconfigure your wireless network by going to "control panel" then "wireless network setup wizard" Good luck!

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.
