I have just aquired a Toshiba T4400C that I want to connect to a wireless network (only to change tunes playing on winamp). However it is running windows 3.1, has no usb, network or pc card, nor a cd rom! It does have a floppy drive, a telephone line in for a modem, a serial port and a strange looking port called "EXP."

I dont mind going over to Linux if thats what it takes...

Can anyone help?

Get a USB wireless card, a USB to Serial adapter and a copy of Win 95 B. Or for the same money get another laptop.
