I installed a modern SS7 PC and installed Windows 98 on it. I didnt like to have more cables here therefore I took a random WLAN-PCI card I found in a scrap box. Was not easy to find infos about setting up WLAN in Windows 98, so here how I did it for my future reference 😉
Belkin Wireless G+Desktop Card
Model no. F5D7001
FCC ID: K7SF5D7001B
Broadcom BCM4318 BCM4318EKFBG 43xx/Bcm94309mp
According to the official page its Version 2xxx and Windows 98 is unsupported:
According to this page you can use different drivers:

Then for WLAN configuration you need another Software which is not included. I used the one included in the Version 1xxx driver package of above mentioned Belkin page (f5d7001_1212.exe).
EDIT: For WPA2 you also need i.e. Odyssey (OdysseyClient9x.exe), see below.
Linking with my WPA AP was no problem, also got the IP via DHCP without further config.
