I have a Fujitsu S7010 laptop, but there's no (that I can find) wireless
driver for W98. Can anyone recommend an equivalent one that would work?

I have read that the 2100b would do, but the driver file I downloaded from
intel only has xp and 2000 support.

If the manufacturer of the device does not have a win98 driver
it's not too likely one exists.

Though there is a small possibility a win2k driver would work...
you could end up ruining your system in the process

ME would be OK.

I think the 2100b driver would be OK, but intel have dropped the w98 part
from their download.
Of course google give heaps of hits for non-existent drivers!
I'll keep looking.

Maybe you could download the Win2k/XP driver
and extract it and see if if contains a win9x or win98/me folder

I *believe* that the 2100 or 2200 (or both) were part of the "Centrino"
chipset.

IIRC, I looked high and low for a win-98 wifi driver for a Dell 600m
Inspiron laptop back in Q1 2005 and I don't think I found one (I was
able to find win-98 drivers for most or all other components of that
laptop).

Try unpacking this file:

WLan-xp-Toshiba_Satellite_L20.zip.1.zip

Located within this compressed file:

http://tinyurl.com/yhoo9eh

And poke around and see if any of those drivers will work.

That url didn't get me there, but I searched on
WLan-xp-Toshiba_Satellite_L20.zip.1.zip

and got it.

so no good, but thanks anyway.
