Have PC software...what to do?

On a recent overseas move I left my Netgear Wi-Fi PC card WG511 software in Paris. Now in America with the same card but a different laptop, I don't know how or if I can get the card to work on my wireless network without buying an entirely new card. I am using Windows 98. Any advice?

Just asking. Did you try that?

Also, be sure you meet their requirements. I'm finding that Windows 98 may not work. You need Windows 98se.
