I'm having problems connecting a third computer to an existing wireless home network.
I'll give as much info as I can, even the kind that might be obvious since I barely know anything about networking...
The main computer which the router (Siemens SL2-141) is plugged to runs XP. The 2nd computer which is a laptop ThinkPad, also runs XP, and belongs to one of the family members who works at IBM.
The 3rd comp which I want to add is another laptop ThinkPad that belonged to the same person back in 1998. It was kept in the basement up until now, and of course, still runs Windows 98.
As mentioned, the 2nd comp (the newer laptop) is connected wireless-ly.
The 3rd comp has an internal Ethernet network adapter or something that can be removed manually & is called EtherJet CardBus. It sits inside the rear of the laptop with an input for a LAN cable, and by pressing two small buttons you can remove it completely.
I suppose that no wireless connection for this comp anyway? Is there an option to add a wireless network adapter to such an old machine, or will I have to plug it using a cable to the router itself? Whatever the case, will I need to make a new connection using the wizard in that laptop?
Thanks for your time
