Did you get a manual with it? And out of curiousity, why are you running Win95?

... which article?

... I was referring to The Cisco 340/350 PCMCIA card driver info in the link.

... #7 there was a switch on my interface card to turn it to 16bit.

When you install a 16-bit wireless card in Windows 95, you need to (you'll need the Windows 95 floppies or CD-ROM):

Insert wireless card.

Windows 95 will detect and prompt for drivers, which are generally on the A: drive. Point it there.

After you install the drivers for the card, it may prompt you to restart Windows.

After windows restarts, go into Control Panel, Networking, delete all items (Microsoft Client for Windows, NetBEUI etc. (unless you need this) EXCEPT FOR THE WIRELESS CARD. The wireless card should be the only item remaining in the list. Then click "Add, Protocol, Microsoft TCP/IP". It will prompt you for the Windows 95 floppies or CD-ROM so it can copy necessary networking files.

After copying, it should prompt you to reboot. If not, DO SO ANYWAY.

In my experience it is necessary to do it in this order so that TCP/IP can configure the adapter correctly. If TCP/IP is installed before you install the adapter, it generally won't configure the adapter properly.

This is the procedure I have used for my Netgear MA401 wireless card on my Windows 95 laptop. Works like a charm.
