Hi all, I am having trouble installing this wireless adapter on my computer. The operating system is Windows 98 SE. This is what I did:

1. Installed the adapter into the PCI slot.
2. Turn on the computer.
3. The PCI Ethernet controller was detected by the computer.
4. "Search the best driver for this device." - Computer
5. Then I inserted the installing CD that came with the adapter.
6. The computer couldn't detect a driver.

And then:
7. I went online and download a driver for the adapter.

But it still didn't work. I actually have very little idea on what I am doing. :thumbsup:
Any suggestions/advice are welcome!
