T42 + Windows 98, wifi card with WPA2 support

#1 Post by matti157 » Sun Sep 10, 2023 2:10 pm

I have a T42 with intel 2915ABG board, unfortunately there are no drivers for Windows98

The drivers are only there for:
-Cisco Systems Mini PCI Wireless LAN (Cisco Aironet Wireless 802.11b).
-Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B (Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter)
-ThinkPad 11a/b/g Wireless LAN Mini PCI Adapter
-ThinkPad 11b/g Wireless LAN Mini PCI Adapter
-ThinkPad 11a/b/g Wireless LAN Mini PCI Adapter II

Can you tell me which of these supports WPA2?

I only ever succeeded getting WPA2 to work on Win98 with Ralink RT61 cards, and as far as I know, none of the stock Thinkpad WiFi cards use that chipset.
