Question about Asante AL1611 802.11b Wireless Adapter
The best thing about this old Asante AL1611 wifi-b card is that it only protrudes 1cm. I use it mainly for surfing in coffee shop with an old Portege 3480CT (P3-600) XP-based laptop, and its fine. Range is mediocre.
This card is based on an old Realtek 80211b chipset. For both WEP & WPA compatibility you must you update to the RTL8180L driver (version 173) - look for this filename: ndis5x-8180(173).zip on the net.
The mfg/dealer rebate of $10 never came through, so I paid $20 for it back in 2004. If you can get it for about $10 or less and just need basic connectivity, its good for what it is. (from Canada)

Is this a new device? A lot of newer wireless adaptors come with drivers for NTFS based operating systems such as windows 2k or XP. Windows 98 runs on FAT32. I don't know if this will work. I suggest you upgrade your OS.
