Using wireless for Winme--

Posted by fredda5018 (My Page) on

I have an old computer with Winme installed. I can still use it using dialup. Has anyone tried using a wireless usb adaptor to get online? Would be using neighbors connection(with permission) to do this. I am using this setup on another computer, xp pro, and it works fine. Any opinions/suggestions are appreciated. Thanks, fredda

Its possible, but why on earth would you want to??? WinME is no longer supported..the link is for a Robotics adapter, but the same procedure would undoubtedly apply to other makes..Its important to follow step by step

Here is a link that might be useful: WinME robotics wireless usb adapter

Try it, that'll answer the question. Do you have the installation CD (that has the drivers)?

Whatever adapter you choose has to be compatible with WinME. Good luck with that.
