[vcf-midatlantic] Windows 3.11 Networking

I've dabbled a bit with 3.11 networking, namely with an attempt to bring one of my utility computers to the web -- a Toshiba T1910CS-200.  The end goal being browsing with a 486.  I read about attempts to connect an Orinoco WiFi card up within 3.11 which seemed promising.  However, while driver support is available for DOS with that card, turns out that 95 is the earliest Windows that it works with.  Even then, no attempts to get the DOS drivers working have have been successful.  

Anyway, back to your work Bill, how long did it take you to set up TCP/IP within 3.11, and how hard was it locating suitable drivers?

visited vcfed.org. It's close to usable believe it or not using Netscape 2.0 via Win 3.11, if you turn off javascript. Now you know. FYI - My site, vintagecomputer.net is compatible with Netscape 2.0 and early Mosaic versions if you're looking for another site to search. It looks just like 1994 there.

Post some screen captures.
