The network card itself would be an Intel card. The driver is on the site above, but if you want Intel's latest version, search for "82562" in the driver section of www.intel.com (I can't give you the exact link to Intel's drivers, unfortunately).
The network card (also the sound and video) is integrated onto the motherboard on this computer. You probably just need to install the drivers. You can download the drivers from Dell here. Also make sure the onboard network hardware is enabled in the computer's BIOS setup. (If you didn't use a restore set from the manufacturer and just install Windows, you almost always need to install the drivers for integrated hardware.)
a win98 machine will likely have a rg-45 plug in the back, it's unlikely that may come with wireless network card. just use a straight through cable (the typical network cable) to physically connect the win98 machine to your linksys router, if you don't have any special security on your router, your win98 should be connected after a few seconds.
if you are getting a network card (possilby wireless): install a network card on your windows 98 computer. if you're buying one make sure in the package says that it is supported by win98 (most are supported in win2k, xp, vista and 7 now so look closely before buying),
if you already have a network card and you are trying to install it, look for proper drivers from the network card manufacturer (drivers need to match model number and operating system(win98)). install your network card as per indicated in package or website if you are downloading drivers.
if you are connecting wirelessly, assuming that drivers are properly connected look in the network manager you just installed and look for the network name for your linksys router (whatever you configure that to be when your first install the linksys router) and attemtp to connect providing a password or any security requested.
According your problem it seems to be your try to install faulty Network card. So better is check with new good card.another possibility is some time pci slots fail to recognise a hardware, so try it with another pci slots of mother board.According to you onboard network card is dead, means motherboard fails to work when connect to a network,after successfull installation of network card also the possibility of motheboard not allow you to work with new network card ,same situation may arise,i am also managed same problems in several customer place while working as an computer hardware engineer.So try with new network card it may solve your problem
I would check in device manager(control panel) and see if the network card is listed.It probably has a yellow exclamation point next to it.
If there is an exclamation point there, then right click the card and click uninstall. Next, using your wifi to access the internet, download the latest network card driver from the PC vendor website / Motherboard vendor site / discrete network card site.
Install the network card driver and you should be back in business.
my friend if it is not on board network card, un plug the card and replace with the new one and then u make sure that u follow the instructions given when installing and also u have to configure again the ip adress or net work set up as before
