Wireless-G USB adapter doesn't work on W98-SE

Can't make a wireless-G USB adapter (Encore ENUWI-G2 5033, Realtek RTL8187B driver) work on a Compaq Presario Notebook running Windows 98-SE.
I have already updated the driver. If the adapter is plugged while the PC is on, the wireless network application finds out the network, ask for the WEP keyword but can't get any IP number. It seems that TCP/IP protocols are not loaded for this specific adapter.
Otherwise if I plug the adapter and only then turn the computer on, the TCP/IP protocol is loaded but the screen keeps on flickering as if the system is fighting with the network utility to get the focus and can't get the IP number.
Help me!!

    The adapter software on my USB adapter flickers on and off constantly, it will connect with the Wizard option but then drops and recognizes the signal constantly. I've tried with and without USB cable.

No, don't use a static IP...even to test. The wireless device needs to work by getting a unique IP

If you're sure that you're typing the correct key on the correct place you can try setting a static ip, subnet , gateway and dns server on it.

A bit of reasearch suggests that your device uses Realtek chipset (RTL8187B), however sometimes the manufacturers change the chipsets without changing the model number which makes things more difficult to work with...

You could try the drivers from here:
