Portege 4000 - How to enable WLan using W2k

Hi,

I've installed the Lucent Wireless LAN driver (6.41.1.87) for this laptop which has W2K.

However, I can't seem to control it! I also installed a Wireless Hotkey, but there are no instructions on it.

This laptop originally had W98SE on it, and it was a struggle to get that working.

Any ideas?

Hi

The FN buttons are controlled by Common Modules.
Please install Common Modules in order to get the FN key working!
Additionally you have to install Wireless Hotkey

Furthermore there are two different WLan drivers for Portege W2k; Cisco Wlan driver and Lucent Technologies Wlan driver.
Be sure that you are using the right driver!

OK, thanks-I will try this at a later date, as I needed to get working and installed Puppy Linux which picked up every single driver!...
