Y.A.P.F.C.A. (Yet another Plea For Computer Advice)
I use an old Toshiba 386 laptop to run my DOS CNC router controller. I've always used a floppy to transfer the G-Code from my shop CAD computer to the laptop. Lately, the floppy has balked a few times but so far has always come back with a spritz of canned air.
I know one of these days the drives's gonna go Tango Uniform on me so I'm thinking about trying to get the laptop up on my wireless network. The laptop runs Win95 so probably isn't going to see (without a fight anyway) the Linksys WPC11 PCMCIA wireless adapter a friend gave me.
I Googled and it looks like several drivers are available for this adapter running W95 but my skills in the network area are sadly lacking. Has anyone here done this and remembers how to go about it? Oh, and my network is a "G" type and the adapter probably isn't. Compatible?
I think Evan just did a W95/Network hookup on his digital picture frame thread....are you there Evan?
ps: I'm on vacation this week....anybody else besides me wondering why the heck I'm even considering computer masochism? It must be be a disease.
