    I have an old dell "1997" , Latitude LM 133, windows 95, no usb ports , I switched from dial -up to DSL for new cpu. I made a wireless network with D- Link router for direct TV and tivo updates. I would like to use dell on the wireless network. But all D-Link pcmica cards state they work only with windows 2000. I would like to use the dsl connection but not sure how to make it work

    I suspect you'll have great difficulty finding a wireless adapter to run with W95. Does this machine have an Ethernet port? My guess is no.

    He also needs W95 drivers, which are a bit harder to come by. Also, while there's a description of that card, try to find it anywhere. :)
