Question about Computers & Internet
There are several ways to achieve what you want!
One method does not require wireless equipment on your old PC. The Older PC must have a wired network interface and be connected to the netwotk that has the wireless device to which you want to connect. If that is the case, please comment back.
Otherwise, the older PC probably has a PCI bus on the motherboard, or the PC may have USB ports. I suggest that obtaining a USB Wireless interface may be the least difficult. A USB WiFi interface looks just like a flash drive and costs about the same as an 8GB flash drive.
An example of one would be an IoGear GWU523 USB WiFi adapter for less than $20 at Office Depot.
There are other brands, such as LinkSYS, NetGear, etc. It's best to obtain the same brand as the wireless device you may be trying to connect to.
