Wireless LAN Module and driver MS-DOS?

hello,

Indicate to me a Wireless LAN Module functioning under MS-DOS (OS). PCMCIA, MiniPCI...

I used before Wireless LAN module AIR-LMC350 series ( AIR-LMC352 external antenne) and driver DOS. But this model is not manufactured any more by Cisco

Thanks,

Regards.

Re: Wireless LAN Module and driver MS-DOS?

Likely as not, you're out of luck.

For as old as the 350 is, MSDOS was considered fairly dead when it came out and writing drivers (for MSDOS) would probably be considered wasted time.

You might be able to find some kind of NDIS wrapper, or somthing like a Clarkson "packet driver" (they used to do DOS drivers for the NICs of the day.... )but most efforts today for non-Windows drivers would probably be for Linux.

So, as a possibility, maybe running Wine (a Windows emulator that runs under Linux), using a Linix driver for that NIC, might get you by.

Wine is (I think) still alpha/beta, but it might be a possible solution.

Good Luck

Scott
