Was getting some mixed signals about this card – some places said it would work, Netgear’s own instructions and box made no mention of Windows 98.
So I called up their Indian call centre to see if it would work. After 3 million questions about who I was the lady’s answer was simply “try it and call us if it doesn’t”.
Well, I fitted it, I powered up the machine, Windows 98 found the new hardware, and after a little seeking around on the supplied CD I found a driver that works.
Just ask the New Hardware Wizard to look for drivers in a certain location (not to search for the best one), go to your CD drive, and install the driver that is in the FA311v2 folder. Filename is Netfa311v2.inf
My ancient steam driven PC is now connected to the new wireless router by an ethernet cable, not USB.
Now I’ve got to try and set up a network with the lappie. Might be a long afternoon 😦
